A Sentence



A Sentence :



A sentence has two main parts – namely clause and phrase.

Observe the difference between Sentence, Clause and Phrase.

A Sentence is a group of words that contains at least one Subject and one Predicate and makes complete sense. If a Subject or a Predicate is absent, but implied, the group, though elliptical, is still a sentence.

1. A bad workman quarrels with his tools.
2. Thank you. (I thank you.)
3. Shocking! (It is shocking.)
4. Well done! (It is well done.)
5. Come here. (You have to come here.)

A Clause is a group of words forming part of a sentence and containing a Subject and a Predicate.

1. This is the boy who won the first prize.

A Phrase is a group of words that makes sense but does not contain a Predicate either expressed or understood.

2. Turning to the left, he came upon a ruined temple.
3. He came in the morning.
