Flavoring The Subject

a: A predicate ~
b: an adjective

What: "A predicate is like an adjective, in that it describes something about a subject. For example, in the sentence "a baseball is round", the predicate "is round" describes a particular subject (in this case "a baseball"). Because we have separated the two things out, we can then go on to apply the predicate to other round things: "the Earth is round", "circles are round" and "soccer balls are round" will, instead of each being their own sentence, be represented as a single predicate applied to three different round subjects."
