This study is conducted to reveal the use of verbs in the predicates in the art article Clash of the Titans in Time
Magazine Vol. 157 No. 8 page 62-64 February 26th, 2001. The main theories used are the theory of syntactic
structures proposed by W. Nelson Francis, and the theory of transformational grammar proposed by Noam Chomsky,
supported by Diane D. Bornstein. The approach of this study is qualitative-descriptive; meaning that the data
consists of words instead of numbers, and the regularities found in the data are explained in detail.
To gain the written data, the art article is chosen as the source of data. Finally, the writer finds out that the writer of the article uses only three among the four different types of predicates with the two tenses. The most frequently used type of predicate is the structure of complementation with the total occurrence 119 (69.19%), and the most frequently used tense is the present tense with the total occurrence 137 (79.65%). Besides, she also discovers an exception found in the data, that is the incomplete sentences (lack of subjects).
