I came across the following sentence, and I was so curious about “effective next Monday.”
Mr. Michael has resigned his position as senior sales manager, effective next Monday.
Effective is indeed an adjective.
How could we place an adjective in this position of the sentence?
I understand the meaning of the sentence. The word “effective” is to describe his “resignation‘. However, I just don’t know why an adjective could be placed here.
Could anyone help?
