Can anyone help with what word classes the underlined words belong to (conjunction, preposition, determiner, etc)?

When she was 16-years-old, she ran away from home and moved to , then to work as a nurse. During her time in , she kept in contact with her sister. She said “I don’t know what I’ll do about it, but I don’t see why we should just wait… And I always had that picture in my mind, all through this time.”

German inventor John Smith...

She travelled far, crossing several army checkpoints, until she was expelled from the country.

Thanks!

Hi,

When she was 16-years-old a 16-year-old is a noun. 16 years old (ie no hyphens) is an adjectival phrase
she ran away (preposition) from home and moved to London, then (adverb) New York to work as (adverb) a nurse. During (preposition) her time in New York, she kept in contact with (preposition) her sister. She said “I don’t know what (pronoun) I’ll do about it, but I don’t see why (noun) we should just (adverb) wait… And I always (adverb) had that picture in my mind, all adverb through this time.”

German (adjective?) inventor (noun) John Smith...

She travelled far, crossing (verb present participle) several army (noun used as an adjective?) checkpoints, until she was expelled from (preposition) the country.

Some of these words are not easy to classify.

I agree with everything except this:
she ran away (preposition) from home
Here from is the preposition and away is an adverb.
