    Help

    Her voice was musical but unlike that of either of my friends.

    I need help labeling the parts of speech. This is what I think. Her (pos pro). Voice (common noun) was (Lv) musical ( adj) but (cc) unlike (prep) that ( rel pro) of(prep) either ( common noun) of(prep) my (pos pro) friends( common noun).

    Is that correct?

    It is close. These days, "her" and "my" would be called possessive adjectives. "Either" is a pronoun, not a noun.

    Welcome to the forum, GingerProctor.

    Please note that your thread title should include some or all of the words you are querying. Labelling parts of speech would have been good for this thread.
