Why ”parallel ” is an Adj ?

I saw in 3 dictionaries :

1)She was travelling \"parallel\" to her previous route.

2)Take the road running \"parallel\" to thr main road.

3)The river flows \"parallel\" with the main street.

4)This highway runs \"parallel\" to the railroad.

My question is:

All dictionaries say \"parallel\" above works as an adjective ?

I just can\'t understand why.

Would somebody kindly explain to me.

Thanks !

已更新項目:

Mostly, an adjective is used as: S + Linking Verb +Adjective OR Adjective + Noun

Maybe I should put my question this way:

Can we put an adjective (such as : parallel) behind a

Non-linking Verb (such as : travel,run,or flow) ?

    以形容詞來說:parallel

    平行的,同方向的[(+to/with)]

    e.g. These two lines are parallel.   這兩條線平行。

    相同的;類似的[(+to)]

    e.g. She and her friends have parallel likes and dislikes.   她和她的朋友喜惡相同。

    【電】並聯的

    根據你所提供的四個句子, 它們有下的共通點:* 句子中包含著兩條路線, 而 parallel (形容詞) 是形容這兩同路線 (名詞) 是平行 / 同方向的=> 所以 parallel 是 形容詞 (adj.)英文解釋:In

    the above sentences, the word "parallel" describes the routes paralleling to each other. (from the above examples, road vs. main road, river vs. main

    street, highway vs. railroad). Since "parallel" is describing the noun

    (the road, river, etc.), it's considered as an adjective.

    你會說中文吧=""=?

    parallel:平行線/面

    以中文句子造句來說:

    1.那圖畫看起來與另一幅畫平行。

    (這裡指的是"形容兩幅畫平行"用形容詞).adj

    2.這兩條線叫做平行線

    (這裡是指"稱某物的名稱",用名詞).n
