THE SENTENCE/ Subject and Predicate

271. The Subject of a sentence is usually a Noun or Pronoun, or some word or group of words used as a Noun:—

equitēs ad Caesarem vēnērunt, the cavalry came to Cæsar.

hūmānum est errāre, to err is human.

quaeritur num mors malum sit. the question is whether death is an evil.

a. But in Latin the subject is often implied in the termination of the verb:—

sedē -mus, we sit.curri -tis, you run.inqui-t, says he.
