What is the difference in a phrase and a clause?
Thread is locked
A clause is a group of words that contains a subject and a verb. A phrase is a group of words that does not.
"I am eating in the kitchen" is a clause.
"In the kitchen" by itself is a prepositional phrase (a phrase formed from a preposition, in this case, "in."
Does that help?
