    I have some money saved

    1) I have some money saved. 2) I have some money left.

    I think saved and left modify money behind or is there another way to diagram the sentence? Thank you as usual and have a good day.

    left. I haven't spent all the money I had available (after a holiday, for example).

    Re: I have some money saved

    Thank you Rover as usual, and can I ask one more question? Do you call 'left and saved' in the sentences object complement? Or just 'that is' is omitted there? Thank you so much.

    Re: I have some money saved

    I'd call it an object complement if I had to.

    Re: I have some money saved

    Thank you, so you agree that 'that is' is omitted there? I am really sorry about dragging this question out.
