Could anyone tell me, please, which of the following is not a syntactic category: NP,PP,VP,Su?
Also, which answer, please, best fits the subcategorization frame of the verb "to put":
[ _ NP]
[ _ NP, to NP]
[ _ NP, AvP]
[ _ NP, PP]
and which is the regime of "floated" in the sentence: "The river floated the raft."?
Thanks a million!
Re: syntactic categories
re: your second query
The river floated the raft.
This is an ungrammatical sentence - in other words, it is bad English.
to float is intransitive and therefore doesn't usually take a direct object
However, I don't know what all this NP business is all about.
