In the quote below, what is the grammatical term for the phrase in brackets? An adverbial phrase? An adjectival phrase? Also, is it grammatically correct just to place it in between commas in a sentence?
"When it disintegrates it is revealed to be compounded of will, custom, kinship, loyalty, and opportunity, [together with a magnetism of its own], which in some parts always adheres even in fallen greatness."
You can find information about “parentheses and brackets” on the web.
In your sample sentence, the words in the brackets, which seem to contain an opinion or clarification, almost seem as an aside and could be deleted and not change the meaning of the sentence.
How important is this on an academical level (I understand C2 english) but If I were to identify different nouns and verbs it would be a hard task? /TooFriendly112
