The analysis of the constituents of prepositional phrase within noun phrase construction of the articles is based on the syntactic structure, what are the elements which structured in the PP construction. While the analysis of the status of prepositional phrase within noun phrase construction is based on X-bar theory, using tree diagram will have status of either optional (adjunct) or obligatory (complement). The result shows that the constituents of prepositional phrase within noun phrase in syntactic structure are: PP stands as post modifier in the NP and P as the head of PP is followed by NP which modifies the head of PP.
