  • 6th grade E/LA -

    My brother is tall.
    (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 adjective is an adjective that comes after a linking verb and describes the subject.

    Examples:

    Your chocolate cake is delicious.
    I feel fine.

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

    Examples:

    Mrs. Orange is a great teacher.
    Woody Guthrie was a talented song writer.
