Subjects in unusual order

  1. 1.  It is a sentence where the subject is not in the beginning before the verb where you expect to find it.
  2. 2.  Because people talk FUNNY!!!!
  3. 3.  Questions Commands Inverted sentences Sentences that begin with here or there
  4. 4.  In most questions the subject comes before or between the verb. Like › Is he coming? › Has she been in your class all year? › Does Jim know how to do play? › In each sentence the subject is not in the beginning where you would expect to find it!
  5. 5.  When you command someone to do something, do you always say their name? Not usually…You normally would just say, › Come here. › Sit down. › Close your book. › Clean your room.
  6. 6.  We don’t name the person because that sounds weird or angry. › You sit down. › You come here. › You close your book. › So we just say there is an imaginary/implied you there. › (YOU)sit down. So you is the subject.
  7. 7.  Sometimes when we are speaking or writing, we put the subject after the verb. This type of speech/writing can sound very formal sometimes. Like… › Into the basket swooshed the ball. › Over the hill climbed the wheezing car.
  8. 8.  Here is the book about the solar system. There went the boy in my class. It kind of seems like here or there are the subject, but they aren’t. Ask What is here? Who or What went there? The answers are your subjects.
