Syntax deals with combinability of words, . The creation of the theory of a phrase is due to Russian linguists. how words are combined to make meaningful utterances, what patterns they combine on, and what abstract grammatical meaning they express. The main objectivesof Syntax are: 1) to study relations between words within word combinations; 2) to study the sentence as a structural unit which communicates a message in a definite situation. This theory is connected with such linguists as Fortunatov, Shakhmatov, Peshkovsky. All through its development the theory underwent a lot of changes.

A phrase is a group of related words within a sentence that complements the overall structure of sentence. He always speaks in a loud voice. A phrase lacks both the subject and the object. Hence, a phrase cannot stand alone to give complete meaning. The underline group of words in the following sentence is a phrase. A noun phrase comprises of a noun as a head-word and other related words (determiners & modifiers) may come before or after the noun. The entire phrase serves as a noun in a sentence. Noun Phrase noun + modifiers (or determiners).

A noun phrase is a group of words that serves the same purpose as a noun. A noun phrase can be the subject or object of a verb. 3. Noun phrase: reading this book; it acts as the object of the verb enjoy. It can also be the object of a preposition. Identify the noun clauses in the following sentences. 1. I hope to win the first prize. 2. I tried to solve the puzzle. 4. Noun phrase: to go home; it acts as the object of the verb wants. 5. Noun phrase: living in dark stables; it acts as the object of the verb prefer. 6. Noun phrase: to answer the question; it acts as the object of the verb refused. 7. Noun phrase: stealing the money; it acts as the object of the verb denied.

Adjectival phrases always occur inside noun phrases or as predicate adjectives. Example: Dad bought 4. ADVERBIAL PHRASES Adverbial phrases are composed of the adverbs that modify verbs, adjectives, or clauses. Adverbial phrases may occur with more than one word. The extra adverb is called an intensifier. Example: He scored the goal very quickly. PREPOSITIONAL PHRASES Prepositional phrases are composed of the preposition and a following. Prepositional phrases are used either adjectivally to.

Chinese Common Phrases or Classroom Expressions . to hold; to contain; to grasp; to take hold of; handle; particle marking the following noun as a direct object; classifier for objects with handle; classifier for small objects: handful. 65. 功课. 功課. gōng kè. homework; assignment.

Chinese Common Phrases or Classroom Expressions: (In Chinese only): 上课. 下课. 你好. 老师早. 老师.

This noun phrase is the subject of the sentence. The rest of the phrase ‘for ten people’ creates a noun phrase that acts as a direct object. In other words, this sentence is about ‘the quick, brown fo. But, instead of just saying ‘fox,’ the rest of the noun phrase works to describe it. Example 2. I think there’s a good pop song in pretty much anything -Kesha, pop singer. Here, the four words ‘a good pop song’ work together as a noun phrase. Instead of just saying song, Kesha sees a good pop song in anything. The phrase acts as a complement to the subject pronoun ‘there’. d. Noun Phrase as an Indirect Object. An indirect object receives the direct object.

This empirical study investigates complex Mandarin noun phrases (NP) in actual spoken discourse, with special emphasis on the adnominal possessive phrases and the classifier phrases. In investigating the structure of the Mandarin noun phrase, the author finds that there are two highly interesting phenomena which merit special attention: the functional behavior of the particle de in adnominal phrases and the use of classifiers. The particle de is observed to play a crucial role in the syntactic configuration of the Mandarin NP: apart from connecting two elements together, it can occur with all the possible modifying elements and makes explicit the modification relationship such an element bears to the head noun in a complex NP. The use of the classifier turns out to be the most conspicuous typological feature of Mandarin. In view of their significance, the phenomena involving the particle de and the classifier will be scrutinized in chapters two and three, respectively.
