He predicate is the part of the sentence that makes a statement about the subject. The main part of the predicate is the verb.The predicate usually comes after the subject. Once you find the subject, you can easily find the predicate. Just ask yourself what the sentence is telling you about the subject.The predicate might tell you what the subject did (or does, or will do). Let's take another look at our first example:Samantha collects reptiles.In this sentence, as you know, the subject is Samantha. The predicate collects reptilestells you what Samantha does. The verb here is the action verb collects.The subject of a sentence is simply what or whom the sentence is about. It usually comes before the predicate. For example, consider this sentence:Samantha collects reptiles.This sentence is about a person with an unusual hobby—Samantha. Samantha is therefore the subject of the sentence. Here's another example:My girlfriend's boa constrictor seems restless this morning.What is this sentence about? It's about my girlfriend's boa constrictor. The boa constrictor is therefore the subject of the sentence.Some sentences that give commands might look as if they don't contain a subject:Come in, please.In the example above, there is no visible subject. But don't be fooled: the subject in such a sentence is the pronoun you. Normally, the subject in a command is left out, or invisible.
