    Greetings
    You're welcome.

    As for more info, it would help if you could tell me why you're looking at predication. :D I need to narrow down my search.

    Hello

    One more question to the predicate and copula!

    When in the sentence "she washes the car" the -es
    connects the subject and the predicate, (and works
    as the copula), how does it work in the past tense?

    If i say " he washed his car" the -ed connects the
    subject and the predicate, but what in a sentence like
    "bob went home"?

    i can`t see the copula in that sentence. or isn`t the
    copula or linking element always necessary?

    thanks

    I've never found the concept of the predicate useful. The best way to define it is everything that isn't the subject.

    If you want to understand sentence structure, subject, verb phrase, object/compliment, prepositional phrase, relative clause, compound and complex sentence structure covers everything.
