    PHRASE

    Read the sentence below:
    He toiled from dawn till dusk cutting grass and selling for fuel or fodder.
    Could anyone help me to analyze this sentence grammatically?
    What kind of phrase is the bold phrase above?
    Thanks in advance

    Not a teacher.

    It seems to me that the phrase is an adverb modifying "toil."

    thanks I get it. I have another question. Why don't we keep cutting and selling at infinitive?
