Hi, I have a question about the meaning and usage of ‘be of NOUN’. Example: This site is of great archaeological interest.
I guess the sentence means the site is archaeologically interesting but why the sentence above uses ‘of’ after ‘is’? Would you please tell me how you use this ‘be of NOUN’ and give me some examples?
The linking verb "is" usually connects the subject to additional informations which complement it. Here it is complimented with three words(great, archaeological and interest) by means of the phrase.
