From Teflpedia

A complement (/kɒmpləmənt/) is a word, phrase or clause that is necessary to complete the meaning of a given expression.[1]

Linguistic abbreviation is Comp.

Terminology is potentially a little confusing. For example, an adjective complement is the complement of an adjective NOT an “adjective that is a complement.”

Usage note: the word “complement" (with an e) is often confused with its homophonecompliment” (with an I).[2]
