Subject

I noticed you have words labed as nouns, conjunction, etc., but where is the subject?

See example:

We leave our cats alone for a couple days.

English grammar classifies words based on eight parts of speech: the verb, the noun, the pronoun, the adjective, the adverb, the preposition, the conjunction, and the interjection.

 

The subject is a part of a sentence. It is usually a noun or pronoun, but it could also be one of several noun phrases (google it).

In your example, 'we' is a pronoun and the subject of the verb 'leave'. The verb is part of the predicate, or the part of the sentence that performs the action.
