    Labeling Parts of Speech

    Please help me label the following sentences with the correct parts of speeches: Objects of the Preposition, and prepositional phrases with either ADV or ADJ

    Drive west from North Dakota and you are in "The Treasure State."

    Ekalaka is known for dinosaur bones; farmers often find them in the fields.

    (You) drive west from ND and you are in Montana.
    Two independent clauses joined by a conjunction

    You -- ellipted subject
    drive -- verb
    west -- adv
    from ND -- prep phrase in adverbial function
    and -- coordinating conjunction
    you -- subject of the second clause
    are -- copula verb
    in Montana -- locative complement, prep phrase
    -------------------
    Ekalaka is known for dinosaur bones; farmers often find them in the fields.

    Two independent clauses separated off by a semi colon, no conjunction.

    Ekala -- S
    is -- linking verb
    known -- predicate adjective and subject complement.
    for dinosaur bones -- prep phrase, modifies the participle (adjective), so it is an adverbial phrase

    second clause:
    farmers -- S
    often -- A
    find -- verb
    them -- direct object
    in the fields -- locative adjunct, adverbial, prep phrase
