  3. One-member or two-member (two principal members of the sentence)

  4. Extended or unextended. (Unextended sentences are those, which include the predicate and only obligatory members which express a complete thought. The sentence is extended if it includes one or more optional members).

  5. Declarative, interrogative, imperative. All of them may be used in the negative and affirmative form.

  6. The sentence can be modified by a secondary predicative construction of CO, CS, “for”- phrase, gerundial complexes, NA.

My uncle’s new house in the suburbs is known to have been built on the top of a sandy hill only 5 years ago.

It is a simple, two-member, definite personal, extended, declarative in the affirmative form sentence which is modified by a secondary predicative construction of CS.

The subject of the sentence is “my uncle-s house to have been built”. It is expressed by the CS in which the subject is “the house”. It is expressed by a common noun in the singular. It is modified by an attribute, expressed by the common noun “uncle” in the singular, modified by the possessive. “My” is an attribute to the noun “uncle”, expressed by a possessive pronoun in the conjoint form. “New” is an attribute to the Subject, expressed by an adjective. “To have been built” is a secondary predicate which corresponds to a SVP, expressed by a perfect, non-continuous active infinitive.

The predicate of the sentence is “is known”. It’s a SVP, expressed by the verb “know” in the present tense, passive voice, indicative mood.

In the suburbs” is an attribute to the Subject expressed by a common noun in the plural with a preposition.

on the top of a beach” is an AM of place expressed by a noun-phrase in which “top” is a common noun in the singular with a preposition. “of a hill” is an attribute to the noun “top” expressed by a noun in the singular with a preposition.

Sandy” is an attribute to the noun “hill” expressed by an adjective

5 years ago” is an AM of time, expressed by the adverb “ago”. “5 years” is a quantifier expressed by a common noun in the plural and a cardinal numeral.

Only” is an intensifier expressed by a particle.
