noun phrase + prepositional phrase

noun phrase + prepositional phrase

Spread the love

Point 35 in the category of NOUNS is defined as:

prepositional phrase after the main noun in a noun phrase.

We can roughly follow the EGP examples with the following code:

_[AJD] _n _i  _[AJD] _n (but iWeb doesn’t allow alternates in []) Also we have discovered as of 4/12/2020 that iWeb works better with capital letters for code, which is great!  Also we just can’t list the millions of combinations, so here are just a few.


_A _N _II _A _N

*notice all the idiom

1 THE ICING ON THE CAKE 8400


2 AN INCREASE IN THE NUMBER 8123

10855,cn9,Spanish,Male,228,4,w,1593,1,843

Lot[Many] countries like Colombia, [the] United States or Mexico have an increase in the number of divorce[s] due to infidelity.

27416,ay3,Japanese,Female,534,5,w,3641,1,194

This has led to an increase in the number of minors who smoke.

*however this second example has the preposition ‘to’ making it a prepositional phrase, not a noun phrase.
