Noun is used as a subject of verb in a sentence. Verb, in this case, can be a structural-meaning verb or lexical-meaning verb. And, the subject is placed before the verb.

For examples:

Structural-meaning verb : Andi is confused.
Lexical-meaning verb    : Mita call him many times over.

e.g. Lina puts the books on the table

3.Object of preposition (after a preposition)
