Hey people!

I spotted a mistake in an article from The Farlex Grammar Book:

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Adjective-Complements.htm

In this topic, you will find one example:

Quote:
“I’m very happy to know you!” (Very is an adverb that modifies the adjective happy, while about the direction we’re taking is an infinitive phrase that complements it.)


The underlined explanation is referring to the above example, which was:

Quote:
“They seem a little concerned about the direction we’re taking.” (A little is an adverbial phrase that modifies the adjective concerned, while about the direction we’re taking is a prepositional phrase that complements it.)


Could you correct it, please?
