What is a phrase?

A phrase is a group of words that does not have a subject and a verb, and that is used as a single part of speech.

  • Remember the parts of speech are: Nouns, Pronouns, Verbs, Adverbs, Adjectives, Prepositions, Conjunctions and Interjections
  • Phrases act as though they are a separate part of speech.

  • There are three types:
    • Verbals
    • Appositives
    • Prepositional
verbal phrases
Verbal Phrases
  • A verbal is a verb that is used as another part of speech.
    • Some verbals end in –ing, -d, or –ed and do not have a helping verb (is, were, have, etc.) OR have the word “to” in front of the base verb.
  • A verbal phrase is a phrase that contains a verbal. By itself, it is a fragment because it does not express a complete thought.
    • Examples:

Learning about the violin.

To go to the store.

appositive phrases
Appositive Phrases
  • An appositive is a word that identifies or explains the noun or pronoun it follows.
    • Example: Our house, a brick bungalow, is on State Street.
  • An appositive phrase, is a phrase made up of an appositive and its modifiers, is always a fragment. Appositive phrases cannot stand alone!
    • Example: A twenty-five-year-old soldier.
prepositional phrase
Prepositional Phrase
  • Prepositional Phrases are groups of words that start with a preposition and end with a noun or pronoun. These phrases cannot stand alone because they do not express a complete thought.
    • Example: On the battlefield.
  • Prepositions are words that show location.
    • Examples: with, in, over, under, around, etc.
