Hello everybody,

I have a question again (I bet you are surprised :) ),this time about the structure of the following sentence :

"His plan is to keep things secret . "

What is the part " to keep things secret" in this sentence ? It looks like a subject complement to me. Incidentally, in the grammars I've read, I've found only nouns and adjectives been cited to perform the function of a subject complement in sentence.

Thanks everybody for the answers

Re:

The phrase "to keep things secret" looks like a subject complement to me also.

Perhaps others will also comment.
