Dear all,

Please tell me if the verb "to win" is the copulative verb?

That means if it is correct if I say: "she has won *good * in a number of contests she wants"

Thanks in advance

yours trully

"to win" is not a copula (linking verb) in this sentence. It is a transitive verb with a direct
object, "good". But the sentence needs rewriting; it's ungrammatical and difficult to
understand as well.
