Noun Phrases

A noun phrase is a pronoun that has a noun(person place thing or idea) included in front of the noun, that makes the noun a noun phrase.

Why is " I " a pronoun?

" I " is a pronoun because it replaces the noun. If you were to get a name , it would be easier to replace it with " I ".

ex:

How could an action, and a linking verb differ

An Action verb is where the object is doing something in some sort of way, and a linking verb is where the object is connecting the noun phrase to the verb phrase.

ex:

The lion IS roaring really loud

A horse IS neighing in the pasture
