Any Combination Of Words (or even single words) In The English Language Are Phrases  (as long as they make sense)

The Grammatical Term:  “Phrase”

.

.
The Word “Phrase” is the Grammatical Term for any combination of two or more Words in The English Language.  However — it is also possible for a single Word to be a Phrase.
.

The Word, or group of Words that make up a particular Phrase, function as a single Grammatical Unit or Grammatical Device within a Sentence, or a Clause within a Sentence.

Examples Of Phrases

.

Usually we think of Phrases as short expressions which are commonly used and express some idea.  Because many people use the same combination of words — for those who don’t care about its Grammatical Classification — we usually say that it is:  “A CommonPhrase”.  For example:
.

.

“The Early Bird Gets The Worm”  —  This type of Phrase is referred to as an Adage

“A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned”  —  This type of Phrase is referred to as an Aphorism

“Sit Down And Shut Up!” — This type of Phrase can be classified as an Interjection

“Nice!”“Sweet!”“Awesome!”  —  These three single-word Phrases are also Interjections

.

.
All Phrases — whether they are made up of a single word — or are a longer phrase, made up of two or more words — also MUST (as there is no way that they can not) fit into one of the categories of Grammatical Units which are commonly known as “Parts Of Speech” or “Word Classes”.  Furthermore — they can exist in two possible forms.

Notice! — This site is constantly growing.  That means that the terms above that are not-yet linked to their own pages, ARE coming soon!  This, I promise you. 😉

.
Most people have heard of Phrasal-Verbs, Prepositional-Phrases, & Adverb-Phrases.  But just because you may not have heard of the other types of Phrases listed above — that does not mean that they do not exist!
.

The ONLY reason that most people have never heard of those types of Phrases before — is (and I am being completely serious here)…  because so-called “educators” are lazy, AND nearly all of them don’t ever think beyond what they were taught to think.  So they think that just because they never heard of it…  then it must not exist.
.

 

But here on GiveMeSomeEnglish!!! — we are not using the “Traditional English Grammar — which has far too many missing pieces and contradictory “rules”.  We are using The Common Tongue grammar — which is designed to remedy all of those problems with the way that you have been taught until now.
