The structure of PPs

1. For each PP, 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) PP[across the bridge]

c) PP[slightly at odds with his friends]
(:vips 10556:)
d) PP[completely in the wrong]
(:vips 10557:)
e) PP[out of touch in some ways]
(:vips 10558:)

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