First, the "predicate" is just another name for the verb, the word that shows the action in a sentence. Every sentence needs a subject (the person, place or thing doing the action) and a predicate (the action word that tells what the subject has done). The simple predicate is usually the main verb in a sentence. For example: Jerry ran to catch the bus. The subject is Jerry. The word that tells what he did is "ran" and that is the simple predicate.

The verb is sometimes called the simple predicate. Simple predicates are the helping word and verb combination. All sentences have two parts that are the subject and predicate.

A simple predicate is just a verb. For example, in "He walks in the rain," "walks" is the simple predicate; "walks in the rain" is the complete predicate.
