A sentence is the basic unit of communication in written language. It consists of a group of words that convey a complete thought or idea. To build a sentence, one must first understand the basic components, and the rules of grammar and syntax. Once these fundamentals are grasped, one can begin to construct sentences of varying complexity and style to effectively communicate their message.
The basic components of a sentence
The verb is the action or state of being in a sentence. It tells us what the subject is doing or the condition it is in.
The object is the noun or pronoun that receives the action of the verb. It usually answers the question “What?” or “Whom?”.
An adjective provides more information about a noun or pronoun. It describes or modifies the noun or pronoun in some way.
An adverb modifies a verb, adjective, or other adverb. It provides more information about how, when, where, or to what extent something is happening.
We should remember that sentences can vary in structure and complexity.
