Unit 62: SIMPLE SENTENCE TYPES All sentences need a subject and a verb. Some sentences do not need anything else to complete them. But with most sentences, a subject and a verb are not enough. This unit shows you seven basic types of sentences. 1 SUBJECT + VERB (only) Maria is working. They talked. It has been raining. Of course, we can add extra information if we want to: Maria is working very hard these days. They talked about hockey. It has been raining for days. But the extra information is not necessary to make a good sentence. 2 SUBJECT + VERB + NOUN PHRASE (Unit 45) We have found a house. John is the best player. The teacher saw me. These sentences are not complete without the noun phrase. 3 SUBJECT + VERB + ADJECTIVE (Unit 64) The noise was terrible. She looked beautiful. The food tasted lovely.
