The three main parts of a sentence are the
subject, verb and object.
There are three main parts to a sentence. These three parts are
called the subject, the verb,
and the object. In a sentence, the subject is the
person of thing that does the verb. The verb tells you what action
happens. The object is the person or thing that the verb is done
A short sentence may have only a subject and a verb.
These sentences are very short, but they are real sentences. They
have a subject and a verb, and so they make sense.
In a sentence, every word has a job to do. There are seven different
jobs which words do. These jobs are:

Another name for all these jobs is parts of speech, because
they all have a part to play when we speak or write.
