Notes On Noun Phrases - CBSE Class 7 English Grammar
What Are Noun Phrases?  A noun phrase is a phrase that plays the role of a noun. The head word in a noun phrase will be a noun or a pronoun. In the examples below, the whole noun phrase is underlined and the head word is in bold. Eg. I like sitting in the garden. I know the back street. I’ve met the last remaining chief.   Compare the three examples above to these:   I like it.   I know them.   I've met him.        In the above three examples, the words in bold are all pronouns. The ability to replace the noun phrases in the first three examples with a pronoun proves that the underlined  texts are functioning as nouns, making them noun phrases.  Note: Like any noun, a noun phrase can be a subject, an object, or a complement.
