Dear teachers,

What's the pattern of the following sentence, please? SVCA... or SVC ?

Yesterday was the happiest day of the year for me.

yesterday = subject
was = intensive verb

a) the happiest day = subject-related complement // of the year = adverbial of time (optional or obligatory ?) // for me = ?
OR
b) the happiest day of the year for me = subject-related complement

Can a subject-related complement be followed by an adverbial (obligatory or optional)?

Many thanks,
Hela

Yesterday -- S
was -- V
the happiest day of the year -- C
for me -- A

Look at it this way:

For me, yesterday was the happiest day of the year.

HelaWhat kind of adverbial is "for me"?
What are my choices?
"for me":
- expresses the goal, the target? Does it have a particular labelling?
- as far as the sentence structure is concerned it seems optional since the sentence still makes sense without it.
- semantically, however, it seems to be necessary.

Hela as far as the sentence structure is concerned it seems optional since the sentence still makes sense without it.- semantically, however, it seems to be necessary.
Yes, it is grammatically optional and semantically necessary; this is so for many sentence components.
Hela Does it have a particular labelling?
I don't have one, and I don't much like figuring one out; if you have a list of options, I'll choose for you.
