补充说明人物的变化状态,通常放在受词后面,表达受词的结果状态:

She may grow taller.

It made him happy.

They found him different.

I kicked him black and blue.

要注意:形容词补语以“形容词”表达一种属性变化,用来描述受词所经历的状态改变。这种状态通常是可变的、暂时的,而非恒常不变的:

I found him interested in Chinese. →他对中文有兴趣(新发现)

I found him Chinese. (?)→他一直是中国人,不需要发现(不会变)

Chinese是不会改变的血统,不能直接作found的受词补语,除非你要强调这是“崭新”的发现,和过去认定的不一样,因为发现的状态必须是一种“新发现”!
