"Each word in a sentence must serve a particular function, and the order of those words make a sentence complete. The strength of the sentence depends on its overall syntax and grammar. Dissecting a sentence involves identifying each word and the function it serves. Making sure each sentence contains a subject, action phrase and whole idea is the final test in identifying a complete sentence, says Cabrillo College. Find the subject of the sentence. The subject is typically the noun...in the sentence...Find the verb phrase. The verb...denote[s] the action in each sentence. More specifically, a verb phrase is composed of multiple words to make up the action. Look for adjectives. Adjectives are the descriptive elements of each sentence...Search for pronouns. Pronouns are modifications -- and replacements -- for standard nouns. Some examples of pronouns are: I, he or she, him, her, you, them. Look for adverbs. Adverbs modify the standard verb by describing how and when the action is taking place. 'Eat' is a verb. If someone says that...you 'eat enthusiastically,' the word 'enthusiastically' is an adverb."
