A predicate is the verb and its complement (object, etc). In other words, a simple sentence could consist of a subject and a predicate:
I like coffee.
like coffee= predicate (verb + complement)
Does that help? :o
what is a predicate? please explain in plain English and give me an example.
"He has two cars which are all expensive"
In such a complex sentence, could you clarify what is the predicate?
Everything after He is the predicate.Originally Posted by vvaann
It is, by the way, not a complex sentence. (See glossary.)
Also, "He has two cars which are all expensive" should be: "He has two cars, both of which are expensive."
