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

National Curriculum English programme of study links

Pupils should be taught to use expanded noun phrases to describe and specify [for example, the blue butterfly].
