Predicate Noun Examples
Nouns-name a person, place, thing, or idea
Nouns can function as predicate nouns. A predicate noun follows a linking verb and renames the subject of the sentence or clause.
To find a predicate noun:
1) Find the verb.
2) Is the verb and action verb or a linking verb?
3) If the verb is a linking verb, you could have a predicate noun or a predicate adjective.
4) Look for the word after the linking verb that renames or describes the subject.
5) If the word is a noun-a person, place, thing-that renames the subject, you have found a predicate noun.
Sometimes, you may hear a predicate noun called a predicate nominative. These two terms mean the same thing.
Examples of predicate nouns with explanation:
John is my friend.
Is links John to friend-a noun that renames John.
Ann is a nurse.
Is links Ann to nurse-a noun that renames Ann.
Mark and John are baseball players.
Are links Mark and John to players-a noun that renames them.

1) My mom was the class president.
