    sentence analysis 5

    Dear teachers,

    Would you please help me parse these 2 sentences ?

    1) The woman with the veil over her eyes is weeping for her dead husband.

    The woman with the veil over her eyes = subject
    is weeping = intransitive verb ?
    for her dead husband = adverbial of purpose ????

    2) The boy in the blue sweater was disruptive in English class.

    The boy in the blue sweater = subject
    was = intensive / copular verb
    disruptive = subject complement
    in English class = adverbial of place

    Correct / Incorrect ?
    Thank you for your help,
    Hela
