------------------
In each sentence, Is 'same' an adjective or a pronoun?

#3 is the same as #4 in meaning.
If 'same' is the opposite of 'different,' is 'same' an adjective? Or is 'same' a pronoun? • English - Reed, Friday, March 11, 2016 at 11:10pm
It's an appositive. "She is my teacher." "She is not my teacher." 'teacher" is the appositive, in this case a noun. "same" is an adjective in these sentences. "...is the same...", used as an appositive, as in "The tree was tall."

  • English -

    The word "same" can be an adjective, adverb, or noun, depending on how it's used.

    In all these sentences, "same" seems to be used as a noun since the word "the" is in front of it. In those sentences, "same" (as a noun) is used as a predicate nominative (or predicate noun).

    In 3 and 4, "as" seems to be used as an adverb.
