Are these two sentences correct?


Adjectival prepositonal phrase:
I like in our house the big kitchen to cook in. (in our house is the adjectival prepositonal phrase)

Participal Phrase:
I dislike ordering an item online to find a damaged package when it arrives. (damaged package is the participal phrase)

  • English - ,

    Adjectival prepositonal phrase:
    I like in our house the big kitchen to cook in. (in our house is the adjectival prepositonal phrase)
    I'd move "in our house" so that it is immediately after "kitchen." Otherwise, yes, it's fine.

    Participal Phrase:
    I dislike ordering an item online to find a damaged package when it arrives. (damaged package is the participal phrase)
    The word "damaged" is being used as a participle here, but it's not a participial phrase. Here's an example:

    The package damaged during shipment cost more than it was worth.
    (In that sentence "damaged during shipment" is a participial phrase.)

    Here's another example:
    Hiding in the closet, the child felt safe during the thunderstorm.
    ("Hiding in the closet" is the participial phrase.)
