                                       LESSON – 7

FINDING
SUBJECTS IN DIFFERENT TYPES OF SENTENCES:
Interrogative, exclamatory,
and imperative sentences may all have unusual subject-verb order.  To find the subject of an interrogative or
exclamatory sentence, rewrite the sentence so that it is a declarative
sentence. Then follow the usual steps.
                                                  Example:
Interrogative Sentence:  Is he watching the eclipse?
                    Declarative: He is watching the eclipse?
                             Verb: 
is watching
                                      Who or what is watching?  She
                                      He is the subjects of the verbs
‘is watching’
You may need to drop some
words to make a rewritten sentence sound correct:
                                                   Example:
Exclamatory: What a surprise
your visit is!
Declarative:   Your visit is a surprise.
An imperative sentence appears
to have no subject.  However, in
imperative sentences, the subject is understood to be the word ‘you’.  In the example below, ‘you’ is written in
parenthesis to show that it is understood.
                                                   Example:
(You) Close the door.
(You) Brush the dog.
FINDING SUBJECTS:  In the sentence below, draw a line under the
subject of the verb. If the subject is understood, write (you) after the
sentence.
