Introduction to Phrases
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.
