What is a simple sentence?

A simple sentence is usually short, and requires as a minimum a subject and a main verb. Generally they are expressing one basic idea, and are therefore very easy to understand.

Simple sentence examples

  • Dad ate his dinner.
  • Mr Ship ran to the shop.
  • The tree has long branches.
  • The girl played with the ball.
