PP
quickinfo

If adjectives take a Adposition Phrase (PP argument), then it is generally optional. However, in some cases, omission of the PP argument radically changes the meaning of the adjective. Adjectives may be further classified depending on whether or not they impose an animacy restriction on their Noun Phrase NP argument functioning as subject.

The prepositional complement of the adjective may also be realised as a clause related to the selected PP. In some cases, the related PP can be dropped.
