simple subject + modifiers


A complete subject is the simple subject,the main word or words in a subject, along with any of the modifiers that describe the subject.

To identify the (complete) subject, ask yourself who or what completed the action in the sentence.

When defining a complete subject, remember to include both the simple subject plus all of the words that modify it.

1. The school orchestra is performing tonight.

2.My friend, Sarah, is a great singer.
Who is a great singer? My friend, Sarah, is a great singer. My friend, Sarah, is the complete subject.
