"Designing vulgar structures is typical of that architect."
Where are the following parts of speech are located: Subject, AVP/LVP, DO, IO, Subject Complement
Designing and is are both verbs. Designing - Action Verb; Is - Linking Verb. I know that if there are two verbs, you go with the second verb. So,
"Designing vulgar structures is (LVP) typical of that architect."
The subject confuses me because both structures and architect are nouns. In my opinion, since is is the LVP, the subject could be architect. So,
"Designing vulgar structures is (LVP) typical of that architect (S)."
What I don't know is where the DO and IO are located. This sentence does not have a prepositional phrase, so it could (probably does) include both DO & IO.
Sorry if there is some confusion, English is not my native language.
