Subject and Object
The subject of a sentence will normally be a noun, pronoun or noun phrase.
We would expect the subject to go before the verb and the subject is generally what the sentence is about.
An object will also normally be a noun, pronoun or noun phrase.
Objects typically come after the verb and are affected by the verb.
A subject can affect the form of its verb.
Remember, we can leave out the subject if the sentence is a command.
