What is an expanded noun phrase?
An expanded 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 expanded noun phrase. Additional information can also be added after the noun using a preposition.
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
