Mensagem:  <<In: The language is one thing that I´d be worried about. What is the noun phrase?

What is "the language is"? (is it also a noun phrase?) Please help me I don´t understand these noun phrases containing a relative clause.>>

Please see the concept behind noun phrase here:

Why not write, "Language..." without the The?

That I'd be worried about = NP (noun phrase aka nominal phrase also known simply as nominal)

Why not write, "Language has since worried me"?
