Question and answer
what follows a linking or action verb
a linking verb is normally followed by either a predicate noun or a predicate adjective. example: He is my father. IS (linking verb) father (predicate noun). [ Thus the Sentence pattern is Subject (He) - Linking Verb (father) - Predicate Noun (father) or S-LV-PN. another example: She seems tired. SEEMS (linking verb) TIRED (predicate adjective). Thus the sentence pattern is: Subject (She) -
Linking Verb (seems) - Predicate Adjective (tired) or S-LV-PA. It would be good to note that both predicate noun and predicate adjective are considered Subjective Complements (C) So the sentence patterns for both may appear: S-LV-C. On the other hand, an action verb may be followed by a direct object. example: John threw a ball . THREW (action verb) BALL (direct object). Thus the sentence pattern is Subject (John) - Transitive Verb (threw) - Direct Object (ball) simply put: S-TV-DO ]

the meaning of caucus
Weegy: Caucus was widely introduced into American politics through the Democratic Party in New York known as Tammany Hall, which liked to use Native American terms. Main article: Congressional caucus Look up caucus race in Wiktionary, [ the free dictionary. Precincts from Washington State's 46th Legislative District caucus in a school lunchroom (2008).In United States politics and government, caucus has several distinct but related meanings. One meaning is a meeting of members of a political party or subgroup to coordinate members' actions, choose group policy, or nominate candidates for various offices. The term is frequently used to discuss the procedures used by some states to select presidential nominees such as the Iowa caucuses, the first and largest in the modern presidential election cycle, and the only occasionally relevant Texas caucuses.[3] Since 1980 such caucuses have become, in the aggregate, an important component of the nomination process. Because such caucuses are infrequent and complex to organize, there is a practice version called a maucus, a portmanteau of mock caucus.[4][5] Another meaning is a subgrouping of officials with shared affinities or ethnicities who convene, often but not always to advocate, agitate, lobby or to vote collectively, on policy. At the highest level, in Congress and many state legislatures, Democratic and Republican members organize themselves into a caucus (occasionally called a "conference").[6] There can be smaller caucuses in a legislative body, including those which are multi-partisan or even bicameral. Of the many Congressional caucuses, one of the best-known is the Congressional Black Caucus, a group of African-American members of Congress. Another prominent example is the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, whose members voice and advance issues affecting Hispanics in the United States, including Puerto Rico. There is also a Democratic Black Caucus of Florida. In a different vein, the Congressional Internet ... (More)
