What is a phrase?
A phrase is a group of words that does not make complete sense.
However, this group of words does not have a subject, a verb, or both. For example:
- In the corner
- On the wall
- By the sea.
Take a look at this sentence:
- Pick it up
- Take a right turn.
Is this a sentence fragment? It is NOT a sentence fragment because it is a command. Commands have an implied subject. We assume the speaker (or writer) means You pick it up
. Though you is not written, it is implied.
