Must a predicate include a predicator? Do copular verbs count as predicators? Is is (in Alice is guilty) the predicator of which guilty is the predicative complement?

I believe so.

Welcome back after 7 years, IsaacZ! Have you been having fun?

Actually, I didn't notice I joined this forum that long ago and I don't remember a thing about it. If you hadn't reminded me, I would always have thought I joined this year.

What do the words I have underlined mean?

I have the same question.

What's an ascriptive sense, Paul? Is this in opposition to the equative sense?
