Presentation on theme: "Predicate Nominatives. A predicate nominative is a noun (naming word) or a pronoun (a word used in place of a noun) that is the same as the subject of."— Presentation transcript:
The predicate nominative and the subject can be inverted and the sentence will retain its meaning. This is a way to test for the predicate nominative.
Test by inverting: Original Sentence: P.N. P.N. Ms. Hayes is our teacher. Ms. Hayes is our teacher. Inverted Sentence: P.N. P.N. Our teacher is Ms. Hayes. Why does the predicate nominative switch? Because it has to be in the predicate (and *follow* the verb!)
A predicate adjective is an adjective (a describing word) that follows a linking verb and describes the subject of the sentence. In order for a word to be a predicate adjective, it must have a linking verb and describe the subject of the sentence.
Examples: P.A. P.A. The idea seems great. The idea seems great. P.A. P.A. My mom is hungry.
1. The world is chaotic. 2. The world is chaos. 3. The dog named Rufus is happy. P.A. P.N. PRACTICE P.A. P.N.
