optional adjective complement

Postby Kellogg » Sat Dec 29, 2012 8:51 pm

1. They escaped.
2. They escaped unharmed.

I believe that both sentences are correct.

Would you please explain the grammatical role of the optional adjective "unharmed"? I need to know this in order to diagram the sentence.

Thank you

It is a predicate adjective.
