A phrase is a group of words without a subject or a predicate or both and does not express a complete thought. Therefore, a phrase can never stand on its own as a complete sentence. Using different kinds of phrases enables a writer or a speaker to create informative and descriptive sentences that vary in structure. Phrases combine words into a larger unit that can function as a sentence element.

The most common kinds of phrases in English are:

(1)Noun phrases

(2) Verb phrases

(3) Prepositional phrases

(4) Gerund phrases and

(5) Participial phrases.
