compound predicate

A sentence with a compound predicate has two verbs governed by one subject.

Jeb loves ice cream and hates chocolate.

Notice that “loves” and “hates” are both governed by the one subject “Jeb”.

In terms of punctuation, be careful not to place a comma between the two predicates. Compound sentences get a comma; compound predicates do not.
