Review for Quiz
A sentence tells people something about a topic. The topic is called thesubject of 
the sentence.
SUBJECT FACTS(Examples are from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by RoaldDahl.)
1) Subjects can be at the verybeginning of the sentence. The poor fellow, looking thin and
starved, was sitting there trying toeat
a bowl full of mashed-up green
caterpillars.(2) Subjects can be someplace elsein a sentence—even at the end.In the town, actually within sight of Charlie’s house, was an enormouschocolate factory!
The sentence could have thesubject at the
beginning, too.
An enormous chocolate factorywas in the town, actually
withinsight of Charlie’s house.
Either way, the subject is the same — 
whether it’s at the beginning or the end 
of the sentence—becauseit’s the topic of 
the sentence
(3) Subjects can be long. The one food that Oompa-Loompaslonged for more than any other wasthe cacao bean.
(4) Subjects can be short. The cacao bean is chocolate.(5) Subjects can do just one thing.Charlie wolfed down the candy bar
(6) Subjects can do more than onething.Charlie grabbed the candy bar andquickly tore off the wrapper andtook
an enormous bite.
(7) Sentences can have just onesubject. Twice a day, on his way to and fromschool, little Charlie Bucket had towalk right past the gates of thechocolate factory.
(8) Sentences can have more thanone subject.Lots of children and many grown-ups pushed their ways into theChocolate Room.
9) Sentences must have subjects—or they won’t make sense!
? (no subject)
would eat tenOompa Loompas for breakfast andcome
galloping back for a secondhelping.
Without a subject, we don’t knowwho
or what would eat ten Oompa-Loompas
for breakfast and comegalloping back 
for a second helping.
A sentence tells people something about a subject. The commentabout the subject
is called the predicate.
