Sentence structure is a way in which a sentence is arranged, grammatically. The sentence structure of your writing should include where the noun and verb come inside a specific sentence. Sentence structure depends on the language in which you’re writing or speaking.
A simple sentence contains one independent clause, with a subject and a predicate. Modifiers, compound subjects, and compound verbs/predicates can be used in simple sentences. The usual form of a simple sentence is:
subject + verb + object
Things to keep in mind while composing a sentence
Make sure subject and verb agree and noun and pronoun agree. Avoid cumbersome sentences as big sentences can be often confusing. Arrange words carefully.
If your sentences are too short your writing will appear immature and the reader will soon get bored by the monotony. Yet, if your sentences are too long their value becomes lost and it will be difficult for you to keep a check on their grammar and punctuation.
Instead, modify your sentence structure by using a mixture of short, medium and lengthy sentences. When used correctly, short sentences add influence and can focus the reader’s attention. Conversely, well-crafted longer sentences can develop a key idea, add details, and build to an important conclusion.
