    Default Red

    The color of her gown was such a red as makes the eyes ache.

    Is "red" a predicate adjective or a predicate nominative? Thank you.

    Hello Lucky,

    I would say, that it is an predicate adjective. It describes the colour (capacity) of the gown.

    Kind regards,

    how about: "The color of her gown was red enough to make your eyes ache/sore".
