The predicate of a sentence is that part of the sentence which says something about the subject. It expresses the action of the sentence or the condition of the subject.

The complete predicate contains the verb with its modifiers plus any complements and their modifiers.

The verb is sometimes referred to as the simple predicate.

Some authorities do not consider the complements part of the predicate.
