    #1 is not an appositive. This is a line from near the top of the OWL site.

    "An appositive is a noun or pronoun — often with modifiers — set beside another noun or pronoun to explain or identify it. "

    So then an adjective phrase?

    I explained appositives to you yesterday... and gave you examples.

    MC -- you're blindly guessing.
