Sentence Structure 17
The Subject-Predicate Construction - Part 1
Used as the Predicate of a Sentence

A subject-predicate construction can be used as the subject, the object or the predicate of a sentence. Here we pay special attention to its use as the predicate of a sentence.

When a sentence has a subject-predicate construction as its predicate, the person or thing denoted by the subject of this subject-predicate construction is often related to the subject of the whole sentence.

Example

身体

:
Subject of the sentence
身体
:
Subject-predicate construction (used as the predicate of the sentence)
身体
:
Subject of the subject-predicate construction
:
Predicate of the subject-predicate construction

AT-RT WALKER

I'd be more than happy to know your associations of ideas, so please write to me at contact Giuseppe. 谢谢
