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.
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) ?

e.g. These two lines are parallel. 這兩條線平行。
e.g. She and her friends have parallel likes and dislikes. 她和她的朋友喜惡相同。
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.參考資料： 個人意見 + 奇摩字典
