day 45: more about a sentence’s main subject

The main subject is the word or words in the sentence that the entire
sentence is about.

Two facts about the main subject for today:

            a. It is often found at the beginning of the sentence.

                        1) He turned his head.

                        2) The boy had heard something.

            b. It is the person or thing that the whole sentence is

                        1) The girl ran. Who ran? girl

                        2) The father prayed. Who prayed? Father

Tomorrow--compound subjects!
