First, do you know what 'nouns' are? If so, find them; post them here; we will help you idetify the 'noun phrases.'
is this correct
Noun phrase : Cambridge University teacher
i guess "of Cognitive Psychology" is a prepositional phrase
Here is the main subject/verb for that sentence:
(n) teacher / (verb) has published / (n) article
Now you can find all the phrases that modify (describe) all the main nouns
so there are two noun phrases ?
In your sentence, these are all nouns:
Now decide which nouns have modifiers (adjectives) that further qualify those nouns and turn the whole collection of words into a noun phrase. (You've got more than two.) Btw, what did you learn in that course anyway?
Yes, "of cognitive psychology" is a prepositional phrase. But it also modifies the noun "teacher" so it's possible to consider it as a part of a noun phrase.
