A predicate adjective is an adjective that follows a linking verb and modifies (i.e., refers back to) the subject of the linking verb.
A predicate adjective contrasts with an attributive adjective, which typically sits immediately before the noun it modifies.
A example is: The shoes look expensive.
'The shoes' is the subject. 'Look' is the linking verb. 'Expensive' is the predicate adjective.
