What is a complete predicate?


Answer by  patti (29325)

In a sentence, the complete predicate is all the words except for the subject and the words that refer to or modify the subject. "The little boy fell down the concrete stairs." "Fell down the concrete stairs" is the complete predicate; "fell" is the simple predicate.

A complete predicate is all words used in a sentence, other than the subject and its modifiers. For example. The man is running. The complete predicate would be "is running".


Answer by  lorel (274)

A complete predicate is one which contains a verb and a direct object. An indirect object is not necessary for a complete predicate, even if the verb may take one.


Answer by  Phil97 (569)

An complete predicate contains all the words in a sentence from the verb onwards. It stands after the subject phrase of the sentence.


Answer by  Jones19 (23)

All words in a sentence that do not belond to the complete subject (that is, subject with all its modifiers) is a complete predicate. To differ complete predicate from simple predicate, you should remember that simple predicate is only the verb with helping word - i. e. "is", "has" or "would". In simple sentences complete predicate is equal to simple predicate.
