    Wink Noun phrase

    Lately, I've seen a strange situation but I'm not sure if it's correct.
    I want to hold you hand.
    Is "to hold your hand" a noun phrase?
    Please confirm this for me.
    Thank you very much!

    Re: Noun phrase

    No. it's a Verb Phrase:

    -Noun phrase: your + hand.
    -Verb Phrase: verb + noun phrase = hold + (your + hand)
