Basic English Grammar Rules

 

Some of the most basic and important English grammar rules relate directly to sentence structure. These rules specify that:

  • A singular subject needs a singular predicate.
  • A sentence needs to express a complete thought.

Another term for a sentence is an independent clause: 

  • Clauses, like any sentence, have a subject and predicate too. If a group of words does not have a subject and predicate, it is a phrase.
  • If a clause can stand alone and make a complete thought, then it is independent and can be called a sentence.
  • If clauses do not express a complete thought, they are called dependent clauses. An example of a dependent clause, which is not a sentence, is “when I finish my work.” A dependent clause needs an independent clause to make it whole.

If you just started learning English, you first need to know some basic rules of the language. Developing a solid foundation in English grammar will not only help you create your own sentences correctly but will also make it easier to improve your communication skills in both spoken and written English.

Verb Tenses

 

Verbs come in three tenses: past, present, and future. The past is used to describe things that have already happened (e.g., earlier in the day, yesterday, last week, three years ago). The present tense is used to describe things that are happening right now, or things that are continuous. The future tense describes things that have yet to happen (e.g., later, tomorrow, next week, next year, three years from now).
