What does this sentence mean

sentence

"The moon rises." Is already a whole sentence.

One sentence tells a short story. "The moon rises." Or: "I like this music very much." Are two examples of sentences. All texts are made up of sentences. this also applies to the articles in the dictionary. Sentences can be very long, but they can also be very short. “Get out of here!” Is already a sentence. When we hear a sentence, we can tell that it ends when the speaker's voice deepens. Often the speaker breathes in again after a sentence.

A sentence consists of different words, these belong to different parts of speech. You can also divide sentences into sentence parts: "The mechanic - repairs - the car" is a sentence with three sentence parts. In this example it is subject, predicate and object. Knowledge of parts of a sentence is needed to know in which case the parts of a sentence are used. Therefore it has to be “the car” here and not “the car”.

The grammar explains what a sentence is and what belongs to it. It differentiates between main clauses and subordinate clauses. It specifies where a comma has to be or which punctuation mark should be placed at the end of the sentence: a period, a question mark or an exclamation mark. The punctuation marks in spoken sentences also determine the grammar.
