Review!!

  • A complement is a word or word group that completes the meaning of a verb

  • There are four main types of complements:

    1. Direct Objects

    2. Indirect Objects

    3. Predicate Nominatives

    4. Predicate Adjectives


3 predicate nominatives
3. Predicate Nominatives

  • A predicate nominative is a noun, pronoun, or a word group in the predicate that identifies the subject.

  • It is connected to the subject by a linking verb.


Predicate nominatives
Predicate Nominatives

In order to find the predicate nominative, There are 2 questions you must ask:

#1: Does the sentence have a linking verb?

  • The sentence MUST have a linking verbin order to have an predicate nominative.

    #2: What noun, pronoun, or word group in the predicate is linked to the subject?

  • The answer will give you the predicate nominative.
