Ah, I see. I had something different in my mind for "predicate nominative".Originally Posted by MikeNewYork
Could you tell me what exactly "predicate nominative" is? You and RonBee have given me examples, but I still don't understand what it is, I mean, the definition of it.
Strange that nothing happened when I used the SpellCheck.Originally Posted by RonBee
Just a typo, you know.
A predicate nominative is the noun that is the complment of a linking verb. It defines the subject.Originally Posted by Taka
I am a plumber.
I was a librarian.
A predicate adjective follows a linking verb and describes the subject.
She is pretty.
He was dishonest.
If I said there was a predicate nominative in "I am confused", I meant a predicate adjective. :wink:
Ah! You meant to say "a predicative adjective", not "a predicative nominative"!Originally Posted by MikeNewYork
That's why I was so confused.
That's because I was confusing.Originally Posted by Taka
That's because "payed" is a valid word:Originally Posted by Taka
LOL! Actually, your logic is always clear, as I told you!Originally Posted by MikeNewYork
