Other questions about "Ridicule"

Q: I heard that "but I worry about the ridicule he might get from some loudmouth bully."

I can't understand that sentence structure.

I think 'he might get' and 'from some loudmouth bully" modify 'the ridicule' each other.

Is it right??

and is it possible to say "but I worry about he might get the ridicule from some loudmouth bully"?

And could I say "I worry about the ridicule he might get" or "I worry about the ridicule from some loudmouth bully"?
A: It's a reduced relative clause.
The original sentence would be "He might get ridicule from some loudmouth bully".
To change it into a relative clause, you move the object to the front and add the relativiser "that" to get "the ridicule that he might get from some loudmouth bully". To reduce the relative clause, you can remove the "that" and simply have "the ridicule he might get from some loudmouth bully".

You then have the larger sentence "But I worry about (noun)". Here, you can insert the reduced relative clause and get the sentence "But I worry about the ridicule he might get from some loudmouth bully".

Because you can only "worry about" a noun or a noun phrase, your sentence "But I worry about he might get the ridicule from some loudmouth bully" isn't correct. You could say "I worry that he might get ridicule from some loudmouth bully", instead.
"I worry about the ridicule he might get" is perfectly fine, as is "I worry about the ridicule from some loudmouth bully" (although the second is slightly more vague).
