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."

  1. 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.
