The complement of a preposition can be a full Noun Phrase (NP).

The complement of a preposition can be a full NP, as in the following example:

Example 1

Om de beide bêste kij op 'e heechste stâl efkes to meltsjen
for the both best cows on the highest cowshed DcP to milk
To milk the two best cows inside the highest cowshed

In this example, the NP has been expanded to include a determiner and an adjective. Often, however, the NP is reduced.
