Chapter 1. Sentence Basics > Finding the Subject of a Sentence

Finding the Subject of a Sentence

To write well, we must understand the different parts of a sentence. When we understand the parts, we can control our writing more easily. The most important word in a sentence is the subject. Every sentence has a subject. The subject is the topic of the sentence. It is often one word, and it is usually found near the beginning of the sentence. It tells you who or what the sentence is about. The subject is usually a noun or a pronoun. A noun is a person, place, or thing. A pronoun is a word like I, he, or you that takes the place of a noun. Nouns and pronouns are used most often as subjects of sentences. For example,

John moved the copier. John is a noun.
