Under the siege was the hardest time.

Through the long hard slog was depressing.

Through the wood is the nearest way.

I’ll give you until the next morning.

Are those sentences natural? I’m wondering if “preposition + noun” could be a noun and used as a subject or kind of like that.

  • The PPs "under the siege" and "through the wood" are subjects. "Through the hard slog" is not acceptable. "Until next morning" is complement of "give".
