Thanks Marek Guman. Do all the indefinite pronouns if modified by an adjective, the adjective come after indefinite pronoun or it’s only few of the indefinite pronouns?

How are ‘something’ and ‘else’ functioning in this sentence?

I have something else for you.

Thinking good thoughts precedes good actions.

Why is the verb ‘precedes’ used in singular when the noun ‘thoughts’ is in plural?

A complement may be an adjective, noun or adverbial. So, can an object complement be an adverbial.

1. I found the guard sleeping in the barn.
2. I found Jack working at the desk.

Can we consider sleeping in the barn and working at the desk an object complement as adverbial?

Thank you thar and Drago0nspeaker for clarifying this.

Please help me understand, how to identify an expletive in a sentence?

Topic: There was some

There was some great blocking and some fine running and passing in Saturday's game.

Can we say 'there' as an expletive in this sentence? If so, how would we rewrite this sentence avoiding expletive?

(Sorry for starting new post. I did'nt want to club this with the previous post as this being another question)
