Hello, my friends.

- We have an available room for you.

My question is about the function of "for you" here.

It is an adjectival prepositional phrase referring to "an available room" or adverbial prepositional phrase referring to "have" and why?

If you think that it is adverbial, can you tell me what question it answers?

Does it answer the question "Why do you have an available room?" ? I think it doesn't.

So, I hope that you will help me.

Thank you very much.

We have an available room for you.

"For you" is a preposition phrase headed by the preposition "for". The category of a phrase is always determined by the head (most important) word in the phrase.

Its function in the sentence is complement of "have". Phrases that denote the recipient of something are always complements, since the participants are arguments of the verb and arguments are always complements.

Adjuncts by contrast are concerned with the circumstances of the situation and belong to a wide range of semantic categories where they express such things as time, manner, location, reason, condition and so on.

So it functions as an adverbial and it means that when we would like to give extra information about "room", we have to do it in two ways.

1-) We have an available room where you can feel really relaxed, for you.

2-) For you, we have an available room where you can feel really relaxed.

Do you agree with me?

JawelSo it functions as an adverbial

No, as I said before, it is a complement of the verb "have".

Jaweland it means that when we would like to give extra information about "room", we have to do it in two ways.1-) We have an available room where you can feel really relaxed, for you.2-) For you, we have an available room where you can feel really relaxed. Do you agree with me?

No, it's not giving extra information about the room, it's denoting who is the recipient of the room and hence is a complement, not an adverbial.
