I’m working on this sentence but I’m having trouble with it.
This is what I have so far:
To a county so fond of self-deprecation, and for so long in the grumbling, intimidated shadow of its bigger and brasher transatlantic neighbour, it was as though the hometown boy had pulled the prom queen.
to = ?
a country so fond of self-deprecation = subject
and for so long in the grumbling, intimidated shadow of its bigger and brasher transatlantic neighbour = predicate
(I have to do the functions of this predicate as well because I have to show “the second levels” too)
it was as though = ?
the hometown boy = Direct Object
had pulled = Verbal predicate
the prom queen = Indirect Object
Can anyone help me with this or could somebody point me to a good website regarding this subject?
Thanks in advance,
