hello I am very bad at grammer and i have a few questions!
1. what are predicate adj and predicate nouns?
2. what is a linking verb
how can i remember these? do you know any tricks? because my grades are sliping and i am an A student!
In addition, here's a trick that will help you determine if the word is a predicate adjective or a predicate noun: add the word to the verb "seems". If the resulting sentence sounds OK, then it's a predicate adjective. If the sentence doesn't sound OK, then it's not a predicate adjective.Originally Posted by bad_@_grammer
1. She is nice.
Test: She seems nice. (Predicate adjective)
2. It looks good.
Test: It seems good. (Predicate adjective)
3. He eats bananas.
Test: He seems eat. (Not a predicate adjective)
Here's another test: put "very" before the word. If the phrase sounds OK, then it's an adjective, and if the phrase doesn't sound OK, then it's not an adjective:
She is very nice.
It is very good.
He eats very bananas.
