                                          LESSON – 5


             THE SUBJECTS IN DIFFERENT POSITIONS


In most sentences, the subject comes at the beginning, before the verb.  Sometimes,   however, the subject follows the verb.  To find the subject in sentences with unusual word order, follow the usual steps.  First find the verb. Then ask who? Or What? before the verb.

                                      
                                      Example:



               Into the water dived the Duck.

              Verb: Dived

              Who or what dived?  The Duck

              Duck  is the subject of verb, dived.


The subject always follows the verb in sentences that begin with the word Here, There, Or Where.   Here, There, and Where are never subjects themselves.


                                                      Example:

                    Here are the keys to the car.

                     Verb: are

                     Who or what are? The keys

                       Keys is the subject of the verb, “are”.


                         FINDING THE SUBJECTS IN DIFFERENT POSITIONS :
                                    (Underline the subject once and the verb twice):


1.     Where is Crystal’s lunch?


2.     From the kitchen, wafted wonderful aroma.


3.     Out of the cage peeked the bear.


4.     Carefully, Jenny approached the wild cat.


             5.   Here comes my doctor.
