    Question what is a noun phrase shift and a heavy noun phrase shift?

    Dear all,

    need a bit of help again. Can anyone explain what a heavy and a general noun phrase shift is?

    I also have another question, Im not sure whether my explanation for the "principle of endweight" is correct. I understood that if the endweight princible is used, the major information of the sentence is at the at the sentence. Is that correct?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Hmmm.. so you all seem to have problems to answer this question as well. Somehow this is putting my mind at rest... eventhough I need to answer this question in an exam tomorrow. Will continue reading my grammar books..

    Take care Britt

    As you see... Noun phrases is a really difficult subject. I don't know beans about you question...
    Have you already figured out the answer?
    Could you share?

    I have a presentation about it to make... I'm really nervous...
