The differences between adverb and adjective prepositional?

Postby Sarab » Sun Jul 28, 2013 8:30 pm

Below is an example of what concerns me.
In the sentence "I gave each of my friends a blue pencil for Christmas."

I understand that the direct object is "blue pencil" and "for Christmas" is a prepositional phrase, but what type?
Is it functioning as an adjective or adverb?

Also, If I said that "we are such good pals at work".
I understand that the "such good pals" is a complement, but what type of prepositional phrase is indicated here? "at work"

I think it is functioning as an adverb in this situation, not 100% sure of this idea.

Yes, both are functioning adverbially.
