The Sentence

The Sentence :

A combination of words that makes complete sense is called a Sentence. A Sentence is not complete, unless something is said about something else.

When we speak or write we use words. We make ourselves understood by using words in groups. The study of grammar is basically the study of how words behave in groups.

Look at the following groups of words.

1. The sun has risen.
2. My mother is a teacher.
3. I am learning English.
4. in the field
5. at 5 o’clock
6. to see him.

Do you find any difference between the first three (1, 2 and 3) groups of words and the other three? The first three groups of words each make complete sense and can stand alone. They are sentences. The other three (4, 5 and 6) make some sense, but not complete sense. They cannot stand on their own. They are phrases.

A phrase is used as part of a sentence. We might add some words to the above phrases so as to form sentences.

1. The cattle are grazing in the field.
2. The meeting is at 5 o’clock.
3. She wanted to see him.

A sentence is a group of words w'hich makes complete sense. It can stand on its own.

A phrase is a group of words w hich makes some sense and cannot stand alone. It can be used as part of a larger unit that makes complete sense.
