# How to place {} and () in symbol across multiple rows of table

I'm a LaTeX newbie making a first post. I have a table as follows:

\begin{table}[H]
\small
\centering
\begin{tabular}{cl}
\multirow{2}{*}{\emph{NewElement} item'',} & \emph{NewElement}(title'', US sanctions North Korea over Sony''),\\
& \emph{NewElement} pubDate'',
Fri, 02 Jan 2015 20:07:38 GMT'') \\
\end{tabular}
\end{table}


Which compiles into this:

But if I want to add {} and () symbols as follows, how can I do it?

If you can forgive my modest artistic attempts!

So the left round bracket occurs after the first NewElement and after the text "item", the left brace occurs. Then at the end, a right brace and right bracket occur.

Don't use \multirow:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\emph{NewElement}$\left( \mbox{item'',}\left\{ \begin{tabular}{@{}l@{}} \emph{NewElement}(title'', US sanctions North Korea over Sony''),\\ \emph{NewElement} pubDate'', Fri, 02 Jan 2015 20:07:38 GMT'') \end{tabular} \right\} \right)$

\end{document}
