Hi all!

I'm working on a translation project related to grammar and linguistics. 
I have the term "complete and simple subject". I assume it means 
"complete subject" and "simple subject", but I may be wrong.

Would any of you help me clarify the meaning of this term. I never heard 
of "complete subject". In my mind, the opposition was "compound subject" 
and "simple subject".

Thank you.
