What is a complete subject and predicate?


A complete subject consists of the simple subject and any words modifying it, and the complete predicate consists of the simple predicate and all objects, complements and adverbial modifiers. These elements are essential parts of all complete clauses.

An example is "The old, grimy car that my mother gave me amazed the antique dealer." The simple subject here is the noun "car," while the simple predicate is the verb "amazed." The complete subject is "the old, grimy car that my mother gave me." In addition to the simple subject, it consists of an article, "the," two adjectives, "old" and "grimy," and an adjective clause, "that my mother gave me." The complete predicate is "amazed the antique dealer." Here, a direct object, "the antique dealer," joins with the simple predicate.
