Friday pun, was: Re: Copyright puntuation
Here's my analysis:^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The sentence is basically saying "All rights [are] reserved." Thus, we
seem to have the following:
* A subject ("rights) * A predicate adjective ("reserved") modifying the subject (i.e., what
kind of rights?) * A linking verb ("are"--a form of the verb "to be"). However, the verb is not actually stated, only implied.
It is not imperative mood. An example of imperative mood would be:
* "Close the window!"
The subject ("you") is implied but not stated. The imperative mood
expresses a command.
At least, that's my take on it. Any other theories?
