      The X-bar theory brings out what is common in the structure of phrase. The head of the system (X-bar) is the recognition that syntactic categories (lexical categories) are projected from lexical items which these lexical ends, that is Noun phrase, verb phrase, Adjectival phrase and prepositional phrase.

To express a quantity of an uncountable noun, use a word or expression like some, a lot of, much, a bit of, a great deal of, or else use an exact measurement like a cup of, a bag of, 1kg of, 1L of, a handful of, a pinch of, an hour of, a day of.   This book is a research monograph that investigates the crosslinguistic distribution of multiple determiners, and will be of interst to researchers and students working on the structure of DP, the syntax of modification and the typology of noun :

In other words, there are two levels of constituenthood: the lexical level, where single words are constituents by definition, and the phrasal level, where single words don't necessarily behave like multiword constituents.   A verb is an action word. It describes the act of doing something in a sentence. If you want to adjust a sentence to change a verb to a noun, locate the verb and see if it can double as a noun. For example, look at the sentence, "The film impacted the students." The verb here is "impacted."79%().

The examples in (13) show that noun phrases in subject position, object position, and indirect-object position can be relativized on (13ac). Moreover, English allows us to relativize on obliques (13d), the modifier of a genitive construction (13e), and the object of a comparative construction (13f).

As for relativization, English turns out to be a fairly flexible language. (13a) This is the girl who ___ wrote Author: Richard Nordquist. Discusses noun phrases which involve typically predicative nouns, focusing on those anaphoric noun phrases that apparently have to be derived from predicates dominating an entire sentence.

The ensuing modification of Bach's hypothesis provides evidence for a particular theory of relativization referred to as "the promotion analysis." (DS)Cited by: 3.

Noun phrases Academic language often uses complex noun phrases. For example, instead of saying Radiation was accidentally released over a hour period, damaging a wide area for a long time, an academic might say The accidental release of radiation over a File Size: KB. The consequence of this view is that the sequence of modifiers and the relative position of the noun with respect to the determiners derive from various movement operations that pied-pipe the noun phrase to the left of its modifiers and determiners.

These two themes can be traced back to my MIT dissertation. ield distinguishes two main classes of phrases: endocentric phrases (containing a head: word or centre) and exocentric phrases (non-headed). In the sentence Poor John ran away, the noun John may substitute for Poor John.

John ran away. Thus, according to Bloomfield Poor John is an endocentric phrase. Margaret Cargill and Patrick O'Connor This kind of noun phrase can cause problems for EAL [English as an additional language] writers, in our experience.

An example of a noun-noun phrase is 'resource availability.' This phrase means 'availability of resources.' To shorten phrases like this, it is very common in scientific English for the second part (of resources) to be moved in front of the Author: Richard Nordquist.

A noun phrase is a group of two or more words that is headed by a noun (a person, place, or thing) and includes modifiers (e.g., 'the,' 'a,' 'of them,' 'with her'). A noun phrase plays the role of a noun.

In a noun phrase, the modifiers can come before or after the noun. A noun phrase can function as a subject, an object, or a complement within a sentence.

INTRODUCTION* In this paper, we consider the syntax of subject relativization in Spanish, devoting special attention to the role of .Looking at the proof of the theorem, however, we see that k(y ¯) is the result of manipulating codes for oracle machines in an effective way, so that we have a stronger relativization in which the function k is actually computable.

Essentially the same argument was given for Theorem (b) as for Theorem (a).In the relativized version, we see that k(e, y ¯) is again the result of.
