If you'd have done anything different, let me know.
In this sentence, I can't what part of speech anything is. I'd like to know so that I can know if the subsequent word should be an adjective or adverb. Would some one diagram this entire sentence? It be exactly what I need to understand.
A bit of extra information:
[If you'd have done anything different,]: "If" clause, subordinate clause.
would: modal verb
have Auxiliary verb (or helping verb)
done: past participle form of the verb "to do"
would have done: verb phrase
I have a question of my own:
What is the terminology for adjectives that postmodifies something? Is there a term for those kind of adjectives. Is this what we call "reduced relatives"?
EDIT: Never mind, I think I think it's called a Resultative adjective right?
" A resultative adjective is an adjective that is placed postpositively (after the noun it modifies) and reflects a change that occurs by action of the verb on the noun."
