Tip 12: How to construct simple sentences?

The English language follows a structure that is slightly different from Hindi or any other Indian language. In order to create sentences, you should know the following:

Simple Sentence Structure in English

Subject-Verb-Object.

Subject is the person, place or thing you are talking about.

Verb is the action or what the subject is doing.

Object can be a person, place or thing about which we talk and it can be directly or indirectly associated with the subject.

Examples:

1) She is a doctor.

She is the subject. Is is the verb here. Doctor is not an object but just a word that describes a quality. It descibes a professional status of the subject.

2) Rita writes her homework.

Rita is the subject. Writes is the verb. Homework is the object.

3) He told a lie.

He is the subject. Told is the verb. Lie is the object

Three steps to construct a Sentence

Step 1:  Determine what’s your subject, your verb and your object?

Step 2: Determine what time-frame you are in, that is, what is the tense/time required here.

Step 3: Check if your subject agrees with the verb. That is, if your subject is singular, your verb should be singular. If your subject is plural, your verb should be plural.

Practical one:

Step 1: My subject is Rahul. My verb is Write. My object is Diary.

Step 2: My time is simple present tense because I am talking about Rahul’s regular habit.

Step 3: Rahul is a singular subject. My time frame is simple present tense so I will have to use the singular present form of Write, which is Writes.

My sentence: Rahul writes diary.

Practical two:

Step 1: My subject is Indian cricket team. My verb is Win. My object is Match.

Step 2: My time is past tense because I am talking about yesterday’s match.

Step 3: Indian Cricket Team is a singular subject. My time frame is simple past tense, And so I will use 'Won' the past form of Win.

My Sentence: Indian Cricket Team won the match.
