    close. "Parse" is a verb. I'm looking for a noun for this "noun+verb+___+___."

    IN MATH:

    :. this is a Mathematical sentence : 3 x 2 = 6
    :. this is a formula: multiplicand (3) x multiplier (2) = product (6)


    In English :

    :. This is a sentence : John is good.
    :. What do we call this : "Noun+verb+adjective."
