hey, i know that it is annoying but i was just wondering if anyone could help with this simple sentence.
I find it difficult.
I - subject
find - verb
it -direct object
difficult - ???
what function does this adjective phrase have in the sentence?
thanks mate, i thought so
i just wanted to atomize a different sentence, but as i did not want to complicate it, i had rather chosen the above easier one. My original issue was identifying the sentence element that she did not come following the object complementin i found it sad that she did not come
my deduction thus is that the declarative content clause (popularly named that-clause) is in the position of adjective complement, or else it is of course a part of the object complement sad that she did not come. It quite diverts from the common postulate that these kinds of clause can be found in the subject-complement or direct-object functions.
