    her everyone,

    I have a question, you may think it is ridiculous but is it kind of confusing for me.

    Re: subject? object?

    She is judy.

    Subject + Copula + Complement

    There is no object. The complement (a noun) refers back to the subject. The complement could alternatively be an adjective: Judy is smart.

    An object, on the other hand, is a seperate entity which is in some way effected by the action described by the verb.

    I am not a teacher.
