Anatomy of Sentence (Subject and Predicate)

Sentence can be parted into two:

1. Subject : Refers to the object of which the Sentence speaks about.

2. Predicate : Refers to the message or comment which the Sentence conveys about the Subject.

Example : Sugar is sweet

(Here 'Sugar" is the subject what the sentence is talking about and 'is sweet" is the quality that the sentence conveys about the subject)

Normally 'Subject' comes first in the sentence but occasionally the predicates comes.

Example : Here comes the rain.

In some other occasions the subject might left out.

Example : Come Here.
(Here the subject [You] is not mentioned but understandable)
