    1 A Noun Phrase

    A noun phrase is a group of words which describes a noun (a person, place or thing).

    The noun is introduced by a determiner.

    Example:

    determiner noun

    The man

    Expanded noun phrase

    An expanded noun phrase makes noun phrases more descriptive and adds more detail.

    We do this by adding adjectives to describe the nouns.

    Example:

    determiner adjective noun

    The tall man

    Sometime we can use more than one adjective to describe the noun.

    When we do this, we need to use a comma to separate our adjectives.

    determiner adjectives noun

    The tall, slim man
