Transcript of Parts of Sentence: Vol. 2

The Magic Lens by Michael Clay Thompson
Level Two: Parts of Sentence
SUBJECT
PREDICATE
noun or subject pronoun
that the sentence is about
Simple Subject
DIRECT OBJECT
INDIRECT OBJECT
SUBJECT COMPLEMENT
Sentence: a group of words that
contains a subject and its predicate
and
it makes a complete thought

simple subject and all of its modifiers
Complete Subject
A double subject (noun or pronoun) used in the same clause
Joined together by the coordinating conjunction
AND
takes a plural verb
Einstein and Bohr debate quantum physics.

Debate = plural
Debates = singular
Compound Subject
Simple Predicate
the verb
Complete Predicate
everything that is said about the subject
HAMLET went to the crater and gathered three bags of comet dust.
Compound Predicate
more than one verb belonging to the subject
"When the stars threw down their spears/And watered heaven with their tears." --William Blake
Subject-Verb Agreement
When the number of the subject does not equal the number of the predicate, that sentence is not true.
The top of the mountains IS covered by rainbows.
Pieces of glass CUT through her delicate skin.
Noun or object pronoun that receives the action of the action verb
Noun or object pronoun that is indirectly affected by the action verb, and that is located between the action verb and the direct object
We hold these TRUTHS to be evident.
The forest brigade (S)
gave (AVP)
the REBELS (IO)
an ULTIMATUM (DO).
Noun, subject pronoun, or adjective that is linked to the subject by a linking verb and tells more about the subject.
Gauguin was VanGogh's FRIEND.
Van Gogh became loyal to his friend.
SC = ADJECTIVE : predicate adjective
SC = N/PRON. : predicate nominative
The Logic of Level Two Sentence Analysis:
1. Find the subject/predicate set.
2. Ask if the verb is ACTION or LINKING.
If it is ACTION, then...
Do not look for a subject complement
Look for a DIRECT OBJECT
If there is a DIRECT OBJECT, then look for an INDIRECT OBJECT
If it is LINKING, then...
Do not look for direct/indirect objects
Look for a SUBJECT COMPLEMENT

LINKING (lvp)
ACTION (avp)
THE YOUNG GIRL read to her sister.
Joined together by the coordinating conjunction
OR
takes a singular verb when
both subjects are singular
Bach or Beethoven writes musical masterpieces.

Writes = singular
Write = plural
What happens if there is a compound subject that includes one singular and one plural noun joined by
OR???
Use the noun closest to the verb:
The coach or the
players
determine the plays depending on the score.
The players or the
coach
determines the plays depending on the score.

Determine = plural
Determines = singular
All the words after the Subject Hamlet are the Complete Predicate
Subject = stars
Compound verb = threw & watered
linking verb predicate
action verb predicate
Since the verb must agree with the SUBJECT, you need to first identify the subject.
For example, the subject of the first sentence is TOP (one top = singular), not mountains
The subject of the second sentences is PIECES, not glass.
Notice that the simple subject does NOT contain the prepositional phrases (of the mountains, of glass). Mentally mark those phrases out when determining proper subject-verb agreement.
Two types of predicates
FIRST KIND OF PREDICATE =
If you have an AVP, you may have a...
Truths = DO
(D.O.)
If you have a DO, then you may have an...
SECOND KIND OF PREDICATE =
friend = predicate nominative
loyal = predicate adjective
