    main finite verbs

    hi there

    can you tell me if either of the following sentences/headlines have the finite verb omitted; (1) royal rave and (2) eugenie's randy pals left trail of booze and vomit

    i think that the finite verb is missing in (1) but not (2) as it has the name Eugenie and her pals, which indicates who is involved, but i am not sure this is right?
    thanks!
    studygirl.

    Re: main finite verbs

    1- Royal rave- Here, I'd say 'rave' is a noun, so I'd agree with you.
    2- Yes, 'left' is a finite verb
