    your job to finish

    Is this sentence correct:
    1-That is your job to finish.

    Is 'your job to finish' a noun phrase in that sentence?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    I guess: This is your job to be finished.

    MiboMibo, you have to state 'Not a teacher' in your answers unless you are a teacher, it is a forum rule here.

    I am not a teacher.

    After reading the above page, I think it is a noun phrase: 'job' is the noun, 'your' and 'to finish' are modifiers.

    Not a teacher.
