為什麼有的英文的形容詞可以放在名詞後面?

ex: (1)The big zoos hold every animal imaginable.

imaginable 是形容詞為何可以放在animal的後面

(2) Have you ever eaten seafood live?

seafood live也是??

    The big zoos hold every animal imaginable.

    我如果把它寫成最原始的寫法

    The big zoos hold every animal which is imaginable.

    which is imaginable 形容詞子句

    which is 被省略了 變成形容詞片詞 imaginable 剛剛好剩下一個字

    附註:

    形容詞在文法結構本來就可以做前位修飾名詞或是後位修飾名詞

    只是吾人常用前位修飾 方法 囉

    像 A beautiful man

    後位修飾 ㄧ般是由形容詞子句 跟 形容詞片語 來修飾 名詞

    (2) Have you ever eaten seafood live? 以此類推 不在贅言

    根本不是分詞構句的問題.是hold使役的用法.如make me happy根本跟形容詞子句無關啊.解釋根本就不合.若make me who am happy是讓開心的我.後面沒東西了.上面大大根本就一窩蜂跟第1位一起回答的.真是亂講.<我是台灣高一生.比較清楚台灣文法的用法>

    1)

    The big zoos hold every animal (that is) imaginable.

    因為把that is去掉了,imaginable是在形容animal

    2)

    Have you ever eaten seafood (that is) live?

    一樣的方式

    通常that is 在這些句子可有可無,去掉了比較不會覺得句子很囉唆,但是您要放在裡面也可以.

    希望對您有幫助喔!

    這兩句都有省略,而且是省略了同樣的東西

    (1)The big zoos hold every animal which is imaginable.

    (2) Have you ever eaten seafood which is live?

    因為省略了,所以就看起來不合理,這樣就ok了吧
