    Default noun or noun phrase?

    I have been doing some tree diagrams and I have come across this: Výsledky obrázk


    Why is the word 'chef' marked as noun and not a noun phrase? In Student's Introduction to English Grammar you may find this: So we prefer to say that a noun phrase (henceforth NP) normally consists of a noun with or without various dependents. (In other words, the head is accompanied by ZERO OR MORE dependents.)

    Thank you
