a group of words that has at least a subject and a verb and can stand alone, e.g. Birds fly. In a simple sentence, everything except the subject, is classed as the predicate. This may include a direct object and/or an indirect object. E.g. in the sentence John (subject) sent (verb) her (indirect object) the book (direct object), sent her the book is the predicate.
