For our linguistics course we are supposed to analyse the following sentence by breaking it down into its constituent parts. We need to analyse it in terms of Function (FU) and Form (Fo), that is, clause constituents, phrase constituents and word classes.
So how would you analyse the follwing sentence?
His attitude made him very unpopular with colleagues.
This is what I've got so far but not too sure about this.
FU: His attitude = S, made = V, him = Object direct, very unpopular... = A
Fo: S = Noun phrase, V = Verb Phrase, ObjD = Noun Phrase, A = Adjectival Phrase
FU: dtm head, mv, head, premodifier head postmodifier
Fo: det noun, full verb, pronoun, Adjectival Phrase = very unpopular with, Noun phrase = colleagues
FU: premodifier head postmodifier, head
Fo: adj conjunction, noun
If you can't follow my analytics just tell me how you would analyse it when going by the following pattern:
Function: Clause constituents (S, V, Od, Oi, Cs, Co, A)
Form: On the level of "phrase": Noun phrase, Verb phrase...
Function: Phrase constituents: determiner, premodifier, postmod., head, mV..
Form: Word classes: noun, determiner, adjective, adverb...
Function: again, phrase constituents
Form: again, Word classes.
