Stranger
Now the second of my sentences about you is in the first place by sheer necessity one of the shortest which conform to our definition of sentence.

Theaetetus
At any rate we just now agreed on that point.

Stranger
And secondly it has a subject.

Theaetetus
Yes.

Stranger
And if you are not the subject, there is none.

Theaetetus
Certainly not.

Stranger
And if there is no subject, it would not be a sentence at all; for we showed that a sentence without a subject is impossible.

Theaetetus
Quite right.
