Please tell me which modifies which in the second sentence.
It is evident that there are two modifiers in the first sentence, "not" and "in the least". The words or phrases in round brackets are modifiers, and those in square brackets are the elements modified.
But things seem to get difficult in the second sentence. Is my grammatical analysis of the sentence correct?
1/ Gibbie was [(not) [disappointed]] (in the least).
2/ Gibbie was ((not) [in the least]) [disappointed].
