We worry about our friendship with both classmates and teachers.

Is the phrase with both classmates and teachers a complement of "our friendship" or a modifier?

  • What is the part that makes you unable to parse the sentence? It's quite obvious that you know that with both classmates and teachers is a constituent (a phrase, in the example). May 28 '15 at 10:22

    That's a good linguistic question. I'm sure there are some users who welcome this kind of question, though IMHO it's not really important for English language learners. May 28 '15 at 10:37

It's a prepositional phrase that is a postmodifier in the phrase our friendship with both classmates and teachers.
