EVERYTHING (ALMOST) YOU WANTED TO KNOW (WHO WANTS TO KNOW ABOUT THIS STUFF?), BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK. I am totally html inept, but will do my best to keep this blog supplied with plenty of syntax junk. The main aim here is to help my students (my future colleagues, in fact) come to grips with the syntax of English, even if they can't stand it.

ADJECTIVE COMPLEMENT

When used, these complements always follow adjectives. They provide necessary support for the adjective to complete its meaning, and can be NOUN CLAUSES or PREPOSITIONAL PHRASES. Not all adjectives require a complement.

e.g. RETAILERS SEEM EAGER TO PROMOTE SALES.
- “to promote sales” (required noun clause reduced by the infinitive) complementing the adjective “eager”

e.g. YOUNG CHILDREN ARE OFTEN AFRAID OF THE DARK.
- “of the dark” (required prepositional phrase) complementing the adjective “afraid”.

e.g. THE AWARD MADE HIM FEEL PROUD [OF HIS ACCOMPLISHMENT].
- “[of his accomplishment]” (not required prepositional phrase) complementing the adjective “proud”

I believe everything posted made a ton of sense. But, think on this,
what if you wrote a catchier title? I ain't saying your content is not good., however suppose you added a post title that makes people desire more? I mean "ADJECTIVE COMPLEMENT" is a little plain. You ought to glance at Yahoo's
front page and see how they create news headlines to grab people to open the links.
You might try adding a video or a related pic
or two to get readers interested about what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it might make your blog a little bit more interesting.

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser
compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you
know. The style and design look great though!
Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos
