Dear Friends,

Some would say that a clause is also a phrase.

A phrase is simply a group of words. Hopefully, they go together in some way.

A clause has a subject and a predicate.

up the river (prepositional phrase)
saddened by his behavior (participial phrase)

Rain fell. (main clause) (sentence)
unless you tell me where you've been (subordinate clause)

Hi vijay:

What definitions are you using for phrase and clause?

Phrase: a group of words that functions as a unit (of syntax) in the structure of a sentence. See this LINK

Clause: a group of words that functions as a unit (of syntax) in the structure of a sentence and contains a subject and verb.

See this LINK

There is a grey area in the situation where the group of words has a verbal (a non-finite verb - infinitive or participle). Some references, such as the links above, require clauses to have complete (finite) verbs. Others are less strict, and might describe an infinitive phrase as a clause.
