    Default Is this the correct tree diagram

    hello all,

    I have done a few exercises for the following sentences drawing a tree diagram down to the word level.....I want to confirm if these are correct or not. What is the NP in 2? & VP & NP in 3?

    1. "The room was furnished with antiques."

    a. [S [NP The room NP] [VP was furnished with antiques VP] S]

    b. Tree diagram: Unable to draw a tree diagram properly here....

    S
    / \
    / \
    / \
    NP VP
    / \ / \ \
    / \ / \ \
    Det N V AdjP PP
    / \
    P NP

    The (Det) room(N) was(V) furnished (AdjP) with (P) antiques
    (NP)


    c. Phrase Structure Rule : S ==> (Det) N V (AdjP) (PP)


    2. "He said that his sister had gone to Australia"

    a. [S [NP He said that his sister NP] [VP had gone to australia VP] S]

    b. tree diagram unable to draw here for NP. nevertheless will type here.

    [had gone]
    VP
    / \
    / \
    Aux V
    | |
    Perfective |
    / \ |
    / \ |
    had -en went

    c. Phrase Structure Rule : ?????


    3. "We went to a restaurant our guide had recommended to us"

    Default Re: Is this the correct tree diagram

    I am not very well-versed in TG. Send an email to Andrew Radford. He will help you out. I can't (anymore).
