This article (copula) needs attention because:
It has been added to this category for attention. Thank you for your patience.
Instead of the current definition
- A verb that that links two parts of a sentence, indicating that one part is the property of the other. The part which indicates the property is the nominal part.
I suggest the following definition, based on the one from the English Wikipedia:
- A word (which, in some languages may be implicit, or a suffix) used to link the subject of a sentence with its predicate (a subject complement). For example in the sentence "The sea is blue", "is" is a copula.
