Paul, I could generate a list of all anarthrous predicate nominatives
fairly easily, but I am very interested in the assignments as to
definite,indefinite and qualitative. I noticed that you mention just
three occurences where in the anarthrous construction preceded by
the verb (3/53) it is not qualitative. If I might be so bold as to
ask, which three ?
