Some Basic Parts of a Sentence

Every complete sentence needs a subject and a predicate (verb). 

A sentence can have more than one subject 
and/or more than one verb.  
("Plural" means more than one.)

A sentence can also contain a direct object.  
direct object is the thing that is being acted upon by the subject - it receives the action of the verb. 

There can also be an indirect object. 

Definition: A direct object is a noun or a pronoun that the verb in the sentence does something to.
