Predicate Adjectives, Expressions and Example Sentences
Predicate adjectives defines the
general subject of a sentence. This kind of semantic word is normally used after the subject of the sentence, which is a pronoun or noun.
The descriptive word is also linked to any sentence that contains a link in its content. The linking verb functions to connect any verb with a descriptive name, word or pronoun.
For example, pleasures, sounds, looks, smells, feelings, grow, appear, keep, become and remain.
Why Predicate Adjectives Matters?
- Predicate adjectives are important for two different reasons. These;
- The envelope is not used where adjective is required.
- A linking verb should only be completed with a predicate adjective or predicate candidate (ie a pronoun or noun). It can never be completed by an envelope.
- For example;
- Your dinner tastes badly. (False)
