What is a Noun Phrase?
A Noun Phrase is a group of words that operate as a noun in terms of grammar. Unlike single-word nouns, noun phrases can be made up of several words and do not require articles such as ‘a’ and ‘the.’ They can include determiners or adjectives and for this reason, these types of phrases are often referred to as determiners or adjectival phrases.
