"The specialties of the house are chocolate fondue and crêpes suzette."

"chocolate fondue and crêpes suzette" is the subject complement, in this case predicate nominative. This is a compound construction which has two heads: "chocolate fondue" and "crêpes suzette". "And" is the coordinating conjunction.

Hope it helps.
She pitched a perfect game and got a gold medal.

Can you give me an example of a compound subject and compound predicate?
She pitched a perfect game and got a gold medal.

Sorry! There is no predicate nominative in that sentence.

"She pitched a perfect game and got a gold medal." --> Simple sentence, compound predicate (it has more than one main verb). Both verbs are transitive, so "a perfect game" and "a gold medal" are objects, not predicatives.

Compound subject: "My sister, my husband and I went dancing last Saturday."

Compound predicate: "He has been sneezing and coughing all morning."

Compound predicate nominatives are in the following example:

My best friends are Betty and Veronica. There are two

In,

My favorite drink is water, that is a predicate nominative, but there's only one.
Dear Miriam,

Is my analysis correct ?

1) "My sister, my husband and I went dancing last Saturday."

a) My sister, my husband and I = subject

b) went dancing = verb ?

c) last Saturday = adverbial of time

2) "He has been sneezing and coughing all morning."

a) He = subject

b) has been sneezing and coughing = verb

c) all morning = adverbial of time

See you,

Hela
