the appositive


An appositive is a noun or pronoun (often with modifiers) that is placed
beside another noun or pronoun to explain or identify it. Essentially, an
appositive is an additional word or group of words used to tell more about
who (or what) that noun or pronoun is. No verb appears in an appositive
phrase.

In each sentence below, the appositive phrase is underlined, and the apposi-
tive is italicized.
