What is the complete subject in the sentence: Every year, blackbirds and blue jays migrate south? Is there a simple way to know the complete subject? Would it be everything before the verb, migrate?

  • Grammar -

    Normally, you could say that the complete subject is everything before the verb, but in this sentence, there's an introductory phrase that is adverbial, modifying the verb.

    What do you think the complete subject is?

  • Grammar -

    black birds and blue jays

    Yes, that's right.
