User: what is a participle with complements and modifiers?



Weegy: Participles not linked with a helping verb usually function as adjectives, but can also work as adverbs, as we will see below. The easiest verbals for students to recognize are pre-positioned participles, that is, [ the ones that are in the obvious place for adjectives, immediately before a noun. If you show students a sentence like The struggling students were no match for the challenging test. they can easily recognize that struggling and challenging are both adjectives modifying the nouns they precede. Difficulties arise for them when participles introduce phrases that, as a whole, modify a noun. For instance, Giving his friend Sylvester a hearty slap on the back and slipping him a $100 bill, Tompkins followed Sylvester into the casino, crossing his fingers as he entered. In this straightforward but tricky sentence, giving, slipping, and crossing all begin participial phrases that modify Tompkins. As I mention in another section of this site, the phrases work like snapshots of the man Tompkins: they describe his acts; we see him caught in the act, so to speak, of giving Sylvester a slap on the back, slipping him a "C note," and crossing his (Tompkins') fingers. The only "action" word in the sentence is followed. ]
