Predicates

Predicates are used to complete a sentence. The subject names the person, place, or thing that is doing something. A simple predicate consists of a verb, verb string, or a compound verb. For example, "The flower bloomed. The flowers have been blooming. The bulbs opened, blossomed, and then closed for the night."

A compound predicate consists of two or more predicates connected. For example, "The mountain biker began to ride down the trail and eventually entered one of the most beautiful valleys in the area."
