The argument of predication is usually of the category Noun Phrase NP, but it may also be of other categories: Adposition Phrase (PP), Adjective Phrase (AP) or sentence. In addition, there is a special construction in which the combination of AP + PP is predicated of NP, and in which the PP is in a semantic part-whole relation to the NP.
