A noun, a pronoun, or an adjective that follows a linking verb is a subject complement.

The subject complements are:

A predicate nominative is the noun or a pronoun following a linking verb that restates or stands for the subject.

A predicate adjective is the adjective following a linking verb which modifies (describes) the subject of the sentence.
