Hi! I would like to know the sentence pattern of this sentence: I'm calling because I'd like to have a small reception catered this Friday afternoon.
My thoughts were: have as the VERB / small reception as the DO
How can i define CATERED in the sentence?
Re: Sentence Pattern
I think 'catered' in your sentence is a past participle of 'cater', which functions as an 'object complement'.
It describes the object '(a small) reception'.
I hope I can be of some help to you.
