Sentence Structure

Sentences are organized in particular patterns and word orders. These patterns help to show how ideas are related to each other. In English, sentences are built around the basic structure of subject and verb. This structure is called a  "clause."  Sentences can be expanded to express complex ideas by adding phrases and by combining them with other clauses.
