    help - syntactic analysis

    Could someone, please, analyze these three sentences (in terms of syntactic functions). It's pretty urgent! Tnx!

    Freddy Malins said there was a Negro chieftain singing in the second part of Gaiety pantomime who had one of the finest tenor voices he had ever heard.

    When she moved slightly, the great muscles of her nether cheeks rippled to life to prevent the stool from leaning and tottering even an inch.

    Each cough caused a vague pain in his lungs that lingered on for moments after the cough had seared his throat and chest.

    When she moved slightly, the great muscles of her nether cheeks rippled to life to prevent the stool from leaning and tottering even an inch.


    When she move slightly= Adverbial
    The great muscles……cheeks= Subject
    Rippled= Verb
    To life= Adverbial
    To prevent………..inch= Adverbial


    Each cough caused a vague pain in his lungs that lingered on for moments after the cough had seared his throat and chest.


    Each cough= Subject
    Caused = Verb
    A vague pain= Object
    In his lungs………….chest = adverbial

    correction:

    a vague pain = object
    in her lungs = adverbial
    that lingered ..... chest = adjectival referring to 'pain'
