Predicate Nouns
• To locate a predicate noun:
1. Locate a linking verb or verb of condition.
2. Find the subject.
3. Look for something that comes after the
verb that will rename the subject. It will
be the predicate noun.
Locating Predicate Nouns
Example:
The man is a doctor.
(First find the linking verb. It is “is.” Then find the
subject. It is “man.” Finally, look after the linking verb.
Is there something to rename the man? Yes, it is
“doctor.” “Doctor” is the predicate noun.)

Predicate Adjectives
• To locate a predicate adjective:
1. Find a linking verb or verb of condition.
2. Locate the subject.
3. Look for a word that comes after the
linking verb or verb of condition that
describes the subject. That is your
predicate adjective.
Locating Predicate Adjectives
• Example:
– The skyscraper is tall.
(The linking verb is “is.” The subject is
“skyscraper.” After the verb is the word “tall.”
It describes the skyscraper; therefore, it is the
predicate adjective.)
S
LV PA
The skyscraper is tall.

Diagramming Compounds
• Both predicate nouns and predicate adjectives can be made
compound. This means that there can be more than one of them.
They are diagrammed with a fork doo-hickey!
Example:
