- 4.In traditional grammar, a ‘complement’ completes a sentence in which the main verb is one of being, seeing, becoming, feeling, etc — ‘The cat is black’, ‘The woman feels sad’. It is distinguished from an ‘object’, which is the item on which the action of the sentence is performed — ‘He kicked the cat’. In systemic linguistics, however, the ‘complement’ is ‘the part of a sentence which answers the question “Who or what?... after the verb’ (Margaret Berry, An Introduction to Systemic Linguistics: Volume 1, Structures and Systems (London: Batsford, 1975), p. 64).Google Scholar
