Abstract

This study is focused on two problems, they are types of complement and the filler of complement in the sentence. The main aim of this study is to find the filler of complement in the sentence. The data used are sentences which contain the complement found in the novel Everything Changes by Tropper (2008). Data were collected through the library method, then they were descriptively described by applying theory of the types and the fillers of complement which are taken from [2]. The result of this research shows that the subject complement found in data source can be filled by pronoun which are mine, me and us, noun which are are Zack, Lily, man and Hendry King, noun phrase which are my best friend, my fiancée, a middleman, a swinger and a lowlife, adjective which are thick, lean, angry, free and funny, adjective phrase which are very busy, very bright, not stupid and all good and nominal clause. The types of nominal clauses functioning as subject complement are wh-interrogative clause which are what happens, why they pay you the big bucks and what cancer fells like all the time, to-infinitive clause which are to say as little as possible and to stop at the house to say hello and nominal -ing clause which are digging painfully into my chest and things, and couldn’t move at all, sitting in the dark on the top stair and forgetting something. The filler of object complement found in the data source are filled by noun are Norm and dad and adjective phrase very clear.
