In sentences, another multi-word element that can function as a part of speech (adjective, adverb, or noun) is the verbal phrase (VP). Verbal phrases are constructed around a verb form known as a verbal (Vv), and just as prepositions head up prepositional phrases and relative pronouns head up relative clauses, verbals head up verbal phrases. Verbals do not partner with subject nouns or pronouns, and do not assume the main verb slot in sentences. Instead, verbals and the verbal phrases that they lead are located in a variety of other places in sentences. A verbal can also appear alone.

Note: Although grammatically correct and simple to code, stylistically, a more natural (and smoother) way to phrase the passive verb and its modifier in sentence 8.6b—that is, “was proposed first”—would be to place the modifier “first” between the passive verb’s auxiliary verb “was” and principal verb “proposed.” Thus, the text would be “was first proposed” and the coding (V aux * M v * V pass).
