                                          LESSON – 5

             THE SUBJECTS IN DIFFERENT
POSITIONS
In
most sentences, the subject comes at the beginning, before the verb.  Sometimes,   however,
the subject follows the verb.  To find
the subject in sentences with unusual word order, follow the usual steps.  First find the verb. Then ask who? Or What?
before the verb.
                                      
                                      Example:
               Into the water dived the Duck.
              Verb: Dived
              Who or what dived?  The Duck
              Duck  is the subject of verb, dived.
The subject always follows
the verb in sentences that begin with the word Here, There, Or Where.   Here, There, and Where are never subjects
themselves.
                                                      Example:
                    Here are the keys to the car.
                     Verb: are
                     Who or what are? The keys
                       Keys is the subject of the verb,
“are”.
                         FINDING THE SUBJECTS IN DIFFERENT
