Complete Sentences

There are three criteria for a sentence to be viewed as complete. It must contain a subject, it must contain a verb, and it must be a complete thought. A subject is a person, place, or thing that the sentence focuses on. A verb is the actions being done by or to the subject. Completing the thought is important because if one does not complete their thought, then the sentence will make no sense. For example, if someone said “Jerry asked”, it would make no sense without context; however, if they said “Jerry asked for a cookie” then the thought is completed and a complete sentence is formed.
