Exercises on Simple Declarative Statements
Martin Kozloff


Turn these into simple declarative statements. Find the subject and predicate. Remove all the blah blah noise, and then state the subject and predicate. Label the subject and predicate.

“I am not one of those who think that the people are never in the wrong.”

[Edmund Burke. 1730-1797. Selections from the Speeches and Writings of Edmund Burke]

“The attachment of the Roman troops to their standards was inspired by the united influence of religion and of honor.” [Gibbon. Decline and fall of the Roman Empire. V 1.]

“The golden eagle, which glittered in the front of the legion, was the object of their fondest devotion…” [Gibbon. Decline and fall of the Roman Empire. V 1.]

“A martial [warlike MK] nobility and stubborn commons [ordinary folks MK], possessed of arms [weapons MK], tenacious of property, and collected into constitutional assemblies, form the only balance capable of preserving a free constitution against enterprises of an aspiring prince” [who wants to become a tyrant MK]. [Gibbon. Decline and fall of the Roamn Empire]


HINT. Sometimes the subject is at the END of a sentence and the predicate is first. WHAT (subject) is Gibbon telling about?

“Listening not to me but to the Word (Logos) it is wise to agree that all things are one.” (Heraclitus, Greek philosopher. c.500 BCE)

“Be it enacted by the General Assembly, that no crime shall be henceforth punished by deprivation of life or limb…”[Memoir, Correspondence, And Miscellanies, From The Papers Of Thomas Jefferson.]

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…” [From paragraph 2, Declaration of Independence, July, 1776]


“By liberty I mean the assurance that every man shall be protected in doing what he believes his duty, against the influence of authority and majorities, custom and opinion.” [John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton. Lord Acton. 1834-1902] Notice that this is a definition. Find the genus and difference.]


“That public virtue, which among the ancients was denominated patriotism, is derived from a strong sense of our own interest in the preservation and prosperity of the free government of which we are members. [Gibbon. Decline and fall of the Roman Empire. V 1.]
HINT. Gibbon first tells you that patriotism is in the larger class of things that are public virtues. Which one is the subject? Which one is he telling you about---public virtue or patriotism?

“We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare,…. that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved….” [Conclusion of Declaration of Independence]


“But the possession of unlimited power, which corrodes the conscience, hardens the heart, and confounds the understanding of monarchs….“[John Emerich Edward Dalberg. Lord Acton]
“…government by the whole people, being the government of the most numerous and most powerful class, is an evil of the same nature as unmixed monarchy…” [John Emerich Edward Dalberg. Lord Acton]
