    Question How can I extract " modifier and headword" in sentence?

    Hi
    How can I extract " modifier and headword" in sentence?
    or
    How can I extract " the predominant modifier of the headword?
    For example:
    The pitch velvet. The rough sleep
    The crackling headphone. The space silence.

    "The pitch velvet", "the rough sleep" and "the space silence" are all unnatural to me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Ahhh, poetry. Almost as pointless as song lyrics in terms of studying grammar.

    Please give us an example of a sentence in which you wish to work out which is the modifier and which is the headword.

    Adjectives normally preceed the nouns they are modifying.
