    A predicate adj. modifies the subject of the sentence. A predicate nom. is a word in the nominative case that completes a copulative verb. Do you need an example?

    A more simple explanation of predicate adjectives is it modifies the subject of the sentence. In the sentence “The flowers are blue,” the subject is “the flowers.” In this example, “blue” is what modifies the subject, “the flowers,” and is connected to the subject by what is known as a linking verb.

    The predicate nominative is the noun following a linking verb that restates or stands for the subject. Typically, a predicate nominative has the same value or grammatical weight as the subject. [In the following examples, the predicate nominative is bold and the subject is underlined.] At the end of the tournament, Tiger Woods was the leader. The subject and the predicate nominative are essentially the same thing. For many of us on the team, the fans were an embarrassment. EMBARRASSMENT restates the subject FANS. When the plot is discovered, Andrea will be a suspect. Look for the subject, decide whether the verb indicates a state of being and find out what “state” the subject is in. Before the announcement, they were the favorites to win the contest. Once you identify the verb, ask whether the verb was done to someone or something. For example: Did THEY do something? No, they just were. What they WERE is FAVORITES, making FAVORITES the predicate nominative.
