    using 'independent of'

    Dear Sir/Madam

    Which of the following sentence is correct?

    1. You should live independent of your parents.

    2. You should live independently from your parents.

    Besides, what type of phrase is 'independent of your parents'?

    Thank you

    With regards

    V P Kannan

    Re: using 'independent of'

    They are both correct.

    1 could be called an adjectival complement.

    2 could be called an adverbial complement.
