Abstract: In comparing the structure of noun phrases of English with that of Japanese, what is found to be typical of English is its strict ordering rule with regard to premodifiers. In Japanese as an agglutinative language, there is very little constraint in that respect. If Halliday's theory of rank-scale is applied to this different aspect in these languages, the distinction of Group and Phrase is more clearly seen in the syntax of Japanese than English. The term Group will be more useful for Japanese than for English.
