"Slot boundaries"?? I've never heard this term used in English regarding grammar and/or usage.

Here's one sentence taken apart. Perhaps then you can figure this out -- or repost with the definition of slot boundaries!!

The (article modifying "evaporation")
evaporation (subject of the sentence)
of ocean water (prepositional phrase modifying the subject)
produces (main verb of the sentence)
clouds. (direct object of the sentence)

The sentence pattern I see here is S-V-O.

Tell us what you think about the other sentence.
