Homework Help: english

Posted by Nikki on Wednesday, September 6, 2006 at 12:06am.

What would be the prepositional phrase, subject, and verb phrase in this sentence?
The gift was from John and his sister.


Let me point out first that I am far from an English major and you should use additional resources but this is the way I see it.
subject--gift
verb--was
prepositional phrase--from John and his sister



DrBob222 is exactly right.

And here's a really good website you can use in the future to help you learn about and recognize grammatical terms:

It's a fun site, and it even has a place where you can quiz yourself to see how your understanding is coming along.

I THINK THE VERB IS.... FROM.. THE PREPOSITIONAL PHRASE IS... JOHN AND HIS SISTER.. AND THE SUBJECT IS.. THE GIFT.
