    subject

    1-hunting elephants is dangerous

    2-the cat in the house is cute

    this is the subject part but it's too long

    are these the ways how a subject is formed.

    I mean I can put a noun after noun or a noun and a preposition to form a subject?



    THANKS IN ADVANCE

    A subject can be expressed by a stand-alone word, a phrase, a complex or a clause. In your sentences it's a phrase.

    I've also seen the term 'subject group.'
