Parts of a Sentence
Transcript of Parts of a Sentence
October 25, 2012 Parts of a Sentence Complements A word or group of words that COMPLETES the meaning of a verb
Pay close attention to the verb. Is it a linking verb or an action verb? Subject Complements 1. DESCRIBING the subject (predicate adj)
2. RENAMING the subject (predicate nominative) Objects Objects do not rename or describe
Objects take the action so you ONLY find them with action verbs. Direct Objects To find the direct object:
1. Identify the action verb
2. Ask "What?" with the verb Indirect Objects Once you find the direct object, ask "to whom or for whom" to find the indirect object.
The indirect object will NEVER be in a prepositional phrase.
There may not always be an indirect object. Example: Renaming the Subject= Predicate Nominative 1. Example:
Mr. Duncan teaches the class. Direct Objects: 1. Example:
Trey gives his friends cupcakes for his birthday. Indirect Objects: You will be shown four video clips.
