What are some examples of sentences with predicates?

What is the definition of a predicate?


Answer by  Teresa18 (304)

The predicate in a sentence is simply the part of the sentence containing the verb. Usually (in a simple sentence) the last part of a sentence. Such as Peter's dog swam in the river. "swam (verb) in the river" is the predicate.

Predicates modify sentence subjects. "John ate the meat quickly"; "ate the meat quickly" is the predicate. "Icelanders are hardy"; "are hardy" is the predicate. "I won"; "won" is the predicate.
