    I am sure of his success.

    記得有一本文法書(好像是旋元祐老師的)俏皮的發明了「及物形容詞」一詞,

    他說: beV/LV + 形容詞+介係詞 = 及物形容詞, 可接受詞.

    當然文法沒有這樣的術語, 但所說的功能倒是很貼切.

    就文法而言, 本句的"of+N."是副詞片語, 修飾sure.

    副詞可以移動, 例如也可寫為:

    Of his success, I am sure.

    I am sure that he will succeed.

    本句的that子句是名詞子句.

    that所引導的名詞子句前面不可使用介系詞, 但它可作為這個隱形介系詞(of或about)的受詞.
