So, what is a noun? A noun is “People, place, thing, idea” but, what is a “Predicate noun?” A predicate noun is a noun or noun phrase that renames or provides additional information about the subject of a sentence. A linking verb must be used before the additional information. Linking verbs like “Am, is, are, was/were, been” or an action verb must be used. To smell, to taste are also used. Predicate nouns are not difficult with a little effort. Ask your teacher to explain this subject further!
