Definition:

A complement, also called a predicative, is a phrase that gives a description of the subject or object via the verb, while the verb itself expresses no adequate thought without being complemented by this addition. Most typically this is an adjective phrase. [Asher 1994: 4881; Jespersen 2006: 89; Huddleston and Pullam 2002: 251]
