The person, place, or thing performing the action of the sentence is the subject of the sentence. The topic is the person or thing that the sentence is about. A noun or pronoun is normally included in the basic subject, but it can also include modifying words, phrases, or clauses.

There are three different types of subjects. Let's look at three different types of themes with this in mind. Simple subjects, compound subjects, and noun phrases are the three types.

A singular subject is made up of a noun or pronoun that refers to a single person, place, thing, or concept.

The person or object performing the action (or verb) in a sentence is the topic of the sentence.

A complex subject is one that adds information to a simple subject by using modifiers. Here's an example of a difficult subject with the basic subject highlighted in bold: In the flowers, there's a huge yellow bee. Two adjectives plus a prepositional phrase change the simple subject in this example.
