A noun phrase is a simple phrase built around a noun. It contains a determiner and a noun.
For example: a tree, some sweets, the castle
An expanded noun phrase adds more detail to the noun by adding one or more adjectives. An adjective is a word that describes a noun.
For example: a huge tree, some colourful sweets, the large, royal castle
