    Question What are these two types of sentences called respectively?

    1st type:I am happy/I am a student.

    2nd type:I walk/I walk to home.

    The key difference is between the two types of verbs.

    The Second One is subject + predicate +object

    how about the first one?subject + copula +predicative??
    I'm not sure if I'm right.....

    1. SVC; copular construction
    2. SV; intransitive verb + optional predicate adjunct (adverbial)
