Default Re: Many grammar questions

That's great thanks for your time.
The ideas for 1 and 2 are exactly what I was thinking. I find it hard though sometimes to come up with a hard concrete rule I could use/apply in terms of teaching it.
In the case of the 3rd-it's simply referred to as a verb phrase?
These are all coming from lessons being taught in the Japanese JHS.
From the teachers test.---What was the name of the new song? His answer was, Silent Night was.
I just thought it strange to drop the object there.
