    I need help with analysing a sentence

    Hi. Can you tell me if my analysis of this sentence is good?

    I am from England.

    I = Subject
    am = Verb
    from England = Object / Prepositional Phrase?

    "Am" is a linking verb and, as such, does not take an object. "From England " is a prepositional phrase which defines the subject "I".

    Ok, I see. So, for example, in the sentence: "I go to the cinema every week", "to the cinema every week" is the object?
