A sentence is a group of words arranged to make sense. Every sentence must have a subject and a predicate. The subject is the word of which something is stated. The predicate, or verb, is the word which states something about the subject. For example, in the sentence "dogs bark", the noun "dogs" is the subject because something is declared about dogs; the verb "bark" is the predicate because it declares something about dogs.
