Identify the type of phrase

Identify the type of phrase (noun phrase, preposition phrase, etc.) in each of the examples. Although we have included verb phrases as an option, remember that the National Curriculum calls these clauses.

 

In this example, %%PW,0,ARE%%: %%WL,0%%.

Remember that a phrase is a group of grammatically connected words, with a Head word (the most pivotal word). The word class of the Head word gives you the type of the corresponding phrase.
