You may have heard the words "Subject" and "Predicate" before. But, did you know that Subjects are always nouns and predicates always contain a verb?
For practicing effective style, you should think about the "Subject" as an "Actor" and the "Predicate" as containing the "Action!"
Which of the following sentences has no actor in the subject?
- There is no one at home!
- Marlowe's tail was pulled.
- Steven is our lead designer.
- There is a problem with the computer.
