                               NOUNS USED AS SUBJECTS :
A noun may be used as the
subject of a sentence.  The subject of a
sentence tells who or what is being talked about.
          Examples: 1. Sheila strolled around the garden quietly.
                             2. Thousands gathered in the park.
                             — Sheila = subject and strolled = verb
                             — Thousands = subject and gathered =
verb
Sometimes the subject is not
placed next to the verb.  Other words may
separate them.  Occasionally the subject
is at the end of the sentence.
          Example: 1. Sheila always stolled around the garden
quietly.
                          2. Thousands
of fans gathered in the park.
