A clause has to have a subject and a verb. An independent clause stands alone. It has a subject and a verb and it makes sense by itself. A dependent clause has a subject and a verb but doesn't make sense by itself.

A simple sentence has a subject and a verb and it makes sense. Ex: The dog was barking. A compound sentence is two sentences joined together with a conjunction or a semicoline. Ex: (The dog was barking) and (the cat was running.) A complex sentence is a simple sentence and a dependent clause. Ex: Because he was talking, he got in a lot of trouble. A compound-complex sentence is two simple sentence and at least one dependent clause. Ex: Because he was talking, Bob got in a lot of trouble, and he was sent to the office.

A phrase adds information to the sentence but is missing either a subject or a verb.Ex: The strange man pareked his car next to the tall trees.'Next to the tall trees' is the phrase.

Phrase

A misplaced modifier is placed in the wrong spot in the sentence. A modifier needs to be near what it is modifying. A dangling modifier is just there and we have no idea what it is supposed to be modifying.
