  1. Predicate Nouns and Predicate Adjectives Lesson 8

  2. First, Let’s Review... What are action verbs? • action from the body, brain, and heart • think, run, jump, love, solve, like, etc. Can you name another type of main verb?

  3. Linking Verbs Linking Verbs • Have no action • Common linking verbs: be, being, been, am, is, are, was, were • Sensory linking verbs: appear, seem, feel, taste, sound, smell, look

  4. Careful! Sensory linking verbs can also be action verbs! Sally tasted the cookie (tasted = action verb) The cookie tasted good (tasted = linking verb)

  5. Predicate Nouns • A predicate noun renames the subject of a sentence. • It is found in the complete predicate. • It ALWAYS follows a linking verb. Example: Ann is the new student. Ann is the subject is is the linking verb student is the predicate noun; it renames the subject Ann Ann = student

  6. Practice A ruby is a beautiful stone. I am the writer of the poem. Abraham Lincoln was a loved president. We were the first people in line for the movie.

  7. Predicate Adjectives • A predicate adjective describes the subject. • It is found in the complete predicate. • It ALWAYS follows a linking verb. Example: The little puppy was lovable. puppyis the subject was is the linking verb lovable is the predicate adjective; it describes the subject puppy puppy = lovable

  8. Practice The cat is so nice. The hamburger tasted greasy. The ironed shirt still felt warm. That man is wealthy beyond imagination.
