(Thank you for your help in many ways. Would you look at the sentence? Is 'the same' in apposition with 'about 20 degrees C'? )

e.g. The temperature in cave houses is always the same, about 20 degrees C.

Yes, it is. :)

----------------------
If they are in apposition with each other, what is the part of speech of 'the same'? Is' the same' an adjective phrase or a noun phrase? 'about 20 degrees Celsius' is a noun phrase? Then is 'the same' also a noun phrase? Or an adverbial phrase?

  • English -

    "the same" in that sentence is in the position of predicate adjective. Its appositive ("about 20 degrees") is a prepositional phrase. Since prep phrases can act as adjectives, this makes sense.
