Usually, the structural syntax studies the phrase-s as a group of words pronounced altogether and conveying a message or an information about: the doer of action that is preceeding the predicater (NP), the action itself (VP) and the object of action (NP), that is following the predicater as well as the information about the circumstances of the action (PP, Adv.P), etc. On the other hand, the functional syntax studies the sentence elements which are also conveying similar massages or information. Thus, the subject consists of the NP and is placed before the predicater, whereas the Object is also a NP, but placed after the predicater. The Predicater as a heart or nucleus of the sentence is in the same time a VP, decribing the action of the doer and/or his situation. The PP is usually an Adjunct, because it gives information about the circumstances of time, place and manner in which the action occurs. The adjective phrase as a special indipendent phrase is usually in the position of the Subject complement, because it gives the description of the subject as a doer of action. Conclusively there is a functional corelation between the phrases as groups of words containing information about the participants in the event and the sentence elements as constituents of the sentence.
