Basically, I'm confused on this. The sentence is below:
The old English word handbook, for example, has slightly different meaning from the french derived manual, a close synonym.
I have to find the verbal, appositive, prepositional and absolute phrase (if any) in the sentence, and I'm just totally lost. Is there anyone who can help?
The old English word = complete subject (word = simple subject)
handbook = appositive to "word"
for example = transitional phrase
has slightly different meaning from the French derived manual, a close synonym. = complete predicate
has = main verb
slightly different meaning = direct object (meaning) and modifiers
from the French derived manual = prepositional phrase
a close synonym = appositive to "manual"
PS -- There are no subordinate clauses in there -- just one main clause and plenty of modifiers and phrases.
