In my recently concluded test, I was asked to identify the sentence pattern of this sentence:
It stands tall
I split it as:
It | stands | tall S V A
For me, "tall" is an additional information and if removed, the sentence still makes sense to me.
However, my teacher marked it wrong and said that it should instead be C (complement)
Can anyone help me out? Was I wrong or was she?
Also please be simple as I don't know many technical terms except the basic ones. I say this because I went through the link that StoneyB provided, and wasn't able to understand terms like "secondary complement", "sentence-constituent". I know I may be the noobest person around here, so please explain those terms if you use it.
