What is an expanded noun phrase?
A noun phrase is comprised of a noun and additional words help to further describe that noun. Typically, adjectives are added, separated by commas, to describe the noun and create the noun phrase.
Expanded noun phrase examples
- The big brown bear
- The little, run-down house
- The shoes with yellow laces
- Sarah’s bowl of cereal
- The cheeky monkey climbing the tree
