The sentence below often appears in a "blank" page of books.
"This Page Intentionally Left Blank"
Why there's no linking verb after the subject (Page)? e.g.:
This Page Was Intentionally Left Blank
If the adverb in the original sentence is removed, we only have:
This Page Left Blank
So I wonder why the original sentence without a linking verb often appears in books. Is it not odd without a linking verb? Based on my understanding of the original sentence, it means that the page left itself blank, which is odd for me.
Hope to get some clarifications about this.
