How to find the Subject: 1. First find the verb. Then ask “Who or What?” 2. Watch for inverted sentence order. ( That means the subject does not have to come first in a sentence). Example: Over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go. The subject is “we.” 3. Change a question into a statement. Then find the subject and the verb. 4. “Here” and “There” can never be subjects. 5. Look for the understood “you.” 6. A subject can never be found in a prepositional phrase. Memorize the prepositions.
