1.guilty of serious crime "of serious crime" is a prepositional phrase where crime is the object of "of". Out of context, I am uncertain how to categorize this phrase.2.the little girl next door This is a noun phrase where "girl" is the noun which is described by both "the" and "little". "Next" is a preposition which relates the girl with the "door"--the object of the preposition. 3.about what you said This is a prepositional phrase where "about" is the preposition and "what" is the object of the preposition. 4.a good reason why they failed us This is a noun phrase. Good Luck! I have included some sites that may help you in the future with regard to phrases and clauses.
