What is a predicate ajective and what is a predicate nomanative?

(The word "tall" is a predicate adjective; it modifies the subject "brother" from the other side of the linking verb "is.")
My brother is a computer technician.
(The word "technician" is a predicate nominative because it re-names the subject "brother" from the other side of the linking verb "is.")

A predicate nominative is a noun or pronoun that follows a linking verb and means the same as the subject.
