jwschang said:I am here (predicate adverb). Except that adverb phrases are supposed to be headed only by a preposition or infinitive (I wonder why? and who laid this down!!) and not a participle!! Otherwise, I'd say its an adverb phrase modifying "am".
Huh? That's news to me too. Where did you find that? Let me know. I'm interested in checking it out further.
With regard to "I am (situated) here (by X's doing)", reflexive, here modifies situated, a participle: I am situated (participle) in this location (prepositional phrase). predicate adjective

I am typing.
==> Typing I am. (Not OK)
jwschang said:No, that's not a predicate adjective. My post said this one is the present continuous, to contrast with the usage of "going".
Yes. I agree with you there. I was only testing it out to show you that I agreed with you.

Oh, I'm not letting you off that easy. I took the time to think over your analysis. I'm waiting for you to further prove to me that 'going to' is a predicate adjective. Please.
