Sentence diagramming with the X-bar theory.


I'm trying to diagram this sentence:

The book about syntax in the 1980s seems expensive.

But I have no idea what the 'about' is. It is a PP, a CP, something else I don't know about yet? Whatever it is, 'syntax in the 1980's' would be diagrammed in a complement relationship with it, right?

Thank you!
