Sentence Structure

A SENTENCE ALWAYS:

  • begins with a capital letter , eg. B, C, etc.
  • ends with a full stop.
  • contains a subject: the part of a sentence or clause that commonly indicates (a) what it is about, or (b) who or what performs the action.
  • contains a verb (a word that denotes an action, occurrence or state of being).
  • It has to make sense on its own.
  • Simple sentences have one main clause. eg. Friends are important.
  • Compound sentences have two or more main clauses. eg. Friends are important because they look after you.
