object complement


a: Object complement ~
b: a subject complement

What: "An object complement is like a subject complement, but it gives extra information about the state of the object of a verb, not its subject. So instead of following one of these "existential" or state verbs, it follows the object directly, with the sense of "to be" or a similar verb implied:They made me angry."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
