Note 72 – The difference between a phrase and a clause


For the background to my writing challenge, please read my first blog by clicking the following link – http://wp.me/p1x6Ui-4. If you would prefer to dive straight into note 72, then please read on…

A phrase contains a verb but a clause does not. It’s sounds quite simple when you put it into one sentence.  Here are some examples:

Phrases

The following are phrases because they do not contain a verb:

  • Like a big car
  • Just a minute
  • In comparison to

Clauses

The following are clauses because they do contain a verb:

  • They felt cold outside
  • It went well today
  • He told lies yestserday

Hope you have enjoyed today’s blog – please feel free to comment if you wish.  As mentioned before I am happy to take requests on the subject of grammar/punctuation/writing tips or similar. 

Thank you to my regular readers/subscribers for your continued support and a big welcome to any new readers.

Until tomorrow…
