  1. Well, it looks as if you need to study the parts of speech in English. There are 8 categories: noun, verb, adjective, adverb, pronoun, conjunction, preposition, and interjection.

  3. If you're asking about "years," it is not a preposition.

    Here's a list of common prepositions.

  6. Yes, it's a noun. Nouns are the names of people, places, things, or ideas. In a sense, "year" is an idea, and abstract concept -- humans have devised ways to measure time, and "year" is one of the measures. It's considered an abstract or an idea because it's not a person, a place, or a thing.

  7. if im writng a sentence like (Daedalus and his son) were imprisioned in a great maze

    Now Daedalus and his son would be the complete subject "were imprisioned" would be the complete predicate and "in the great maze" would be a prepositional phrase?

  8. complete subject = correct

    complete verb = "were imprisoned" (<~~watch the spelling)

    prepositional phrase = "in a great maze" (yes)

    complete predicate = "were imprisoned in a great maze"

  10. The complete verb in this sentence contains the main verb (imprisoned) and its auxiliary or helping verb (is).

    The word "verbal" is an adjective. To what type of verbal are you referring?

  11. from what i have read a verbal is a word that looks like a verb but functions as another part of the speech. They can function as nouns , adjectives, or adverbs. So would the complet verb be considered a verbal

  13. A verb is a verb -- it is not another kind of word acting like a verb!!

    The word "verbal" is used to modify a noun (usually another part of speech). For example, a verbal adjective is also known as a participle. Some of these end in -ed; others end in -ing; others have irregular endings. Examples of participles are running, chosen, having slept,

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    "Icarus and himself" is the compound indirect object, yes.

    "He" is the subject.
