Subject Compliments: Using more than one noun

Subject Compliment: gives more description or renames the subject

Linking Verb: Verb used to link the subject to the subject compliment. Subject compliments are placed after a linking verb.

 

Example:

Jacob is the winner.

Jacob = subject (noun #1)

Is = linking verb

Winner = subject compliment (noun #2)

 

The verb ‘is’ links Jacob to the winner. This makes it a linking verb. Linking verbs do not show action like the other verbs. They are a link between the subject and the subject compliment.

 

Example:

Jessica was a banker.

Jessica = subject (noun #1)

Was = linking verb of “to be”

A banker = subject compliment (noun #2)

 

“Banker” is the subject compliment because it re-names or gives more information about the subject.
