HOW TO IDENTIFY PHRASES?

 


 A phrase is a group of related words, without a subject, arranged in a grammatical construction and acting as a unit in a sentence.

1.      A noun phrase is built around a single noun.

   Example : A vase of flowers stood on the table

2.      A verb phrase is the verbal part of a clause

      Example: He had been living in London

3.      An adjective phrase is built around an adjective

       Example: He is leading a very interesting life

4.      An adverbial phrase is built around an adverb by adding words before or / and after it

Example: Their economy recovered very slowly

5.      A prepositional phrase has a preposition at the beginning.

Example: She longed to live near the sea
