I am software developer and trying to develop a new language. I need to learn that basic information in English:

  • Create Product.
  • Update Page.
  • Stay Here.

Create, Update and Stay are verbs, of course. What about Product, Page and Here?

Create Product = <Verb> + <Object>

Update Page = <Verb> + <Object>

Stay Here = <Verb> + <Adverb>

Note: create, update and stay are all conjugated as imperative here. When that is the case, there is in general no subject. As as example where there is imperative and subject: "You take your hands off me" (you is the subject).

Both of the objects are nouns, as well. –  Chris B. Behrens Jan 17 '11 at 21:34
