Form and Function
What is the function of the underlined words in the following sentences:
They transmitted messages by telephone and radio in their native language-a code the Japanese never broke.
I need to know the type of phrase and the function of the phrase in the sentence.
I believe the first one is a prepositional phrase while the second is a noun phrase.
Re: Form and Function
The first is an adverbial phrase. The second is an adjectival phrase.
