A noun phrase is a noun and any words in the sentence that modify it.

A noun phrase can be a single word, either just the noun-or more than one word.

Noun phrases can function in several different ways in a sentence:

1. A noun phrase can be a subject:
2. A noun phrase can be a direct object:
3. A noun phrase can be the object of a preposition:
4. A noun phrase can be an indirect object:

Examples:

"a yellow house a skate board the glistening snow"

Each of these phrases contains a noun (house, board, snow). The other words modify the noun.

Examples of noun phrase as subject:

The yellow house is for sale.
The glistening snow covered the field.

Examples of noun phrase as direct subject:

I want a skate board.
Should we buy the yellow house?

Examples of noun phrase as object of preposition:

Jeff rode on a skate board.
Karen lives in the yellow house.

Example of noun phrase as indirect object:

Lisa gave the little boy a candy.
