a.Definition of Clause
According to Cook (1969:65), the clause level is that level that is below the sentence level and above the phrase level the clause is composed of words phrases and, in turn, fill slots at the sentence level. It is a unit of grammar.
Elson and Picket (1962:62) define “The clause as a string of tagmemes that consists of or includes one and only one predicate, or predicate – like tagmeme, in the string, and whose manifesting morpheme, sequence typically fill slots at the sentence level.”
An independent clause is a clause that can stand alone as a major sentence. Based on their internal structure, both independent and dependent caluses can be classified into :
A dependent clause is a clause that cannot stand alone as a major sentence, dependent clauses can be classified into :
Are clauses whose predicates are filled by transitive verbs namely, verbs that must take direct objects, like visit, write, read, play, speak, love, etc.
Are clauses whose predicates are filled by intransitive verbs, namely, verbs taking no direct objects, like works, go, sit, stand, rest, talk, laugh, come, look, atc.
Are clauses whose predicates are filled by equative verbs, like be, become, grow, seem, appear, look, remain, feel, smell, taste, sound, etc.

A.Definition and Types of Phrase
1.Definition of Phrase
According to Cook (1969:9) ;
“ The phrase level is that level that is below the clause level and above the word level.”
The phrase is composed of words and typically fill slots at the clause level phrases. Are word groups that fill the same slots at clause level as are filled by single words.
Elson and Picket (1963:73) define ;
“ The phrase as a unit composed of two or more words potentially. Which doesn’t have the characteristics of clause, and typically, but not always, fill slots on the clause level.”
Based on this definition, the phrase has three main features.
1.The phrase typically fill slots on the clause level.
2.The phrase doesn’t have the characteristics of a clause, and
3.The phrase consists of two or more words.
There are two criteria that can be used to classify phrases;
4.According to the types to the relationship of elements in the structure.
5.According to the types of words that become the heads of the structure.
According to the relationship of elements in the structure, phrases can be classified into:
An exocentric phrase is a phrase that has a complementary distribution with its elements. This means that no elements can substitute the whole phrase. In other words, an exocentric phrase is a non-centered phrase. An exocentric phrase has two elements the relater and Axis. The relater can be filled by a preposition, and the axis can be filled by a word or word group. An exocentric phrase is commonly called a relater – axis phrase. Such as;
a.Modifier – Head or Attributive phrases
A modifier – head is a phrase consisting of only one head word, the head word may be a noun, a verb, and adjective, of an adverb.

These two tagmemes have the same referent and aren’t joined by the connector tagmeme. The first tagmme is called the item tagmeme and the second called appositive tagmeme. Commonly its called the item – appositive phrase. (IA)

And both …. and
But not …. But
Not neither … nor
Or either …. Or
Rather than rather … than
Coordinate phrase can be classified according to the types of words that become the heads into:
a.Coordinate noun phrase
b.Coordinate Verb phrase
c.Coordinate adjective phrase
