AGREEMENT OF ADJECTIVES.
Attributive and Predicate Adjectives.
285. Adjectives are either Attributive or Predicate.
1. An Attributive Adjective simply qualifies its noun without the
intervention of a verb or participle, expressed or implied: as, -
bonus imperátor, a good
commander; stellae lúcidae,
bright stars; verbum Graecum,
a Greek word.
2. All other adjectives are called Predicate Adjectives: -
- stellae lúcidae
erant, the stars were bright.
- sit Scípió
clárus (Cat. iv. 21), let Scipio be
- hominés mítís
reddidit (Inv. i. 2), has rendered men mild.
- tria praedia Capitóní
propria tráduntur (Rosc. Am. 21), three farms are
handed over to Capito as his own.
- cónsilium cépérunt
plénum sceleris (id. 28), they formed a plan full
NOTE: A predicate adjective may be used with sum or a copulative verb (§ 283); it may have the construction of a
predicate accusative after a verb of naming, calling, or the like
(§ 393. N.); or it may be used
in apposition like a noun (§ 282. b).
