Complements of adjectives
Some adjectives can be followed by other words and expressions which complete their meaning. These adjective ‘complements’ can be of different kinds. For example, some adjectives are followed by preposition + noun / -ing form. Others are followed by infinitives.
If the infinitive has its own subject, it is introduced by for.
Many adjectives can be followed by more than one kind of complement.
Note that if the adjective is followed by a noun, we put the complement after the noun.
