Whats the difference between adjunct nd complemen
I agree with Tolley in terms of complement i. e. The words added to complete the meaning of the verb are called complement.
The complement of the intransitive verb always descibes/adds to subject hence known as subject complement. The verbs that are followed by subject complements are: be, seem, appear, look, become, grow, feel etc.
e.g. Red rose looks beautiful.
When the complement refers to object it is known as 'object complement'.
They made Harry chairman.
The jury found him guilty.
The adjunct is something that gives additional information about subject/object e.g.
There are eighty boys in the class.
Here 'in the class' is adjunct. As it is adverbial phrase it is also known as adverbial adjunct.
Our house is near the station.
The shop you are looking for is here.
