In the sentence 'set in a beautiful 24 acre park framed by chestnut trees and lilac bushes, this lovingly restored 16th century chateau combines the character of yesteryear with the modern comforts of today'
Is it true to say 'this lovingly restored 16th century chateau' is the subject? can this be broken down/does it need to be broken down further into Od, Oi, Cs, Co or A? basically can a constituent consist of a phrase or does the analysis need to be deeper for bracketing the constituents? I hope this is making sense. THank you.
