PP
quickinfo

If adjectives take a 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 place an animacy restriction on their NP argument functioning as subject.

The complement of the adjective may also be realised by a clause, introduced by a pronominal PP. In some of these cases, the pronominal PP can be dropped.
