The structure of APs

1. For each AP, identify the head. List the complement and adjunct(s) and name their phrasal category.
(If complements or adjuncts are absent, insert "/". If there are two adjuncts, name the one on the left first.)

a) AP[fond of Sally in some ways]
(:vips 10549:)
b) AP[personally critical of the president]
(:vips 10550:)
c) AP[utterly incompetent]
(:vips 10551:)
d) AP[dependent on the weather]

Source of the picture:

(:vips 10552:)

e) AP[kind to Mary]
(:vips 10553:)

2. Draw a simplified tree diagram to represent the structure of each AP.
