SubjectIn politics a subject is a person who is subordinate to the rule of a monarch or state. Compare with citizen.
For example: The noun dog is the subject of the following clause:
- The dog ate corn.
In most languages, the subject is not marked in any way, as in English (except on some personal pronouns). These tongues use word order. In many languages, the subject can be omitted when it is understood through context.
In philosophy, a subject is a being which has experiences or a relationship with another entity (or "object").
