The Definition of Sentence

            A sentence is an organized series of words that allows you to make a statement, ask a question, express a thought, offers an opinion, and so on. A sentence is organized in relation to what you intend to say and how are going to say it. Sentence has two basic parts: a subject and a predicate. The subject is the part of the sentence that denotes the doer of an action or what the sentence is about. Predicate is the part of a sentence that provides information about the subject. Furthermore, Oshima and Hoque (1999:155) state that a sentence is a group of words that use to communicate the ideas. Every sentence is formed from one or more clauses and expresses a complete thought.
