Identifying the Subject
How do I
identify the

sentence?
The subject of a sentence may come at the end of a sentence. For most questions, the subject of the sentence is in between the predicate.

Example:

Do humans change their environment?


If you are having trouble identifying the subject in an interrogative sentence, try rearranging the words to make a declarative sentence.

Example:

Humans do change their environment.

Compound Subjects
What is a
compound
subject?
A compound subject has two or more simple subjects that have the same predicate. The subjects are joined by
and
,
or
, or
nor
.

Example:

The teacher
and
the student went to the pep rally.


If two simple subjects are joined by the words
and
or
both
, the compound subject is plural. When this happens, the verb must take the plural form.

Example:

The teacher or one of her students
is
always present.



The teacher and her students
are
always present.
