    It's very difficult to give you rules for 'noun phrase', which just means a word or groups of words including a noun. The ude of the term phrase for a single word is used by linguists so that they can divide a sentence into NP and VP, etc. All the words associated with a noun make up the noun phrase, which could incluse articles, adjectives, prepositions, adverbs (modifying adjectives) and other noun working as adjectives. The are rules about individual things like how to make compound nouns plural. If you ask more specific questions or give us examples of phrases you want looking at, then you'd probably get more concrete answers.

    Thank you, RonBee and Tdol for your additional answers on this matter. I understood some of those but not all. I know that my questions are not clear enough. I will get back on this matter again. It is because my English is not good enough, I can therefore not pin point the question to what I realy want to know about.
    I will ask you again when I have enough information about the matter. and some individual things to ask you.
    By the way, what are BE and UDE, you have mentioned herein, please?
    And thank again for the Computer Web site, you mentioned herein too.

    Best regards,
    Piak.

    BE stands for British English. As far as I can tell, UDE is a typo for use.
