    Thanks a lot.
    Note my corrections above. We end sentences with one full stop, not a space and then two dots.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I didn't ask you to edit your post. To avoid my first response appearing nonsensical, I have put your original post back to how you wrote it. Now read post #2 again and please do as Piscean asked.

    Well, I see it this way: "he" is a subject, and "the movie theater" is an object. But I think there's something else!

    Re: Can anyone analyze the parts of the following sentence:

    "With his friend he found the movie theater."

    Yes, 'He' is the subject and the NP 'the movie theatre', headword 'theater', is the direct object - of the verb 'found'.

    The headword of the phrase 'With his friend' is a preposition; it is therefore a preposition phrase. Can you see what its function is in this sentence?

    So, I need to resort to other websites and resources to get my doubts answered!
    Is that how it goes here?
