    See the first noun definition.

    Let me know what you think.

    It sounds to me like it has more to do with the VERB - therefore the ANSWER would be FALSE.

    Right!

    Thank you -

    Found a definition:

    the simple predicate is the verb or verb phrase in the sentence.

    I told you I would be back - just gearing up for the real GRAMMAR NIGHTMARE ahead of me in the months to come on Medical Transcription.

    Thanks again, Leslie

    Yes. Your definition is far better (easier to understand) than that of grammarians!

    Think of a sentence like this ~~> Each clause has two parts: the subject and all that goes with it, and the verb and all that goes with it.

    A sentence can fit any of these patterns (and a few variations):

    1 independent clause = simple sentence
    2 independent clauses (joined by a comma and coordinating conjunction -- or by a semicolon) = compound sentence
    1 independent and 1 dependent clause = complex sentence
    2 independent clauses (joined...) plus 1 dependent clause = complex sentence
