A Sentence is a group of words that is complete in itself, usually containing a subject and predicate, conveying a statement, instruction, question, exclamation, or command, and consisting of a main clause and starts with a capital letter in writing, finishes with a period '.'. (e.g. I am going to study English for just 5 minutes every day.)

A2. A Clause is a group of words and a unit of grammatical organization next below the sentence consist of a subject and predicate (e.g. Subject + Verb). (e.g. I am feeling very well today.) The Clause types are: a Noun Clause, Adverb Clause and Adjective Clause.

A3. A Phrase is a small group of words without a subject + verb component. (e.g. leaving behind the family). The Phrase types are: a Noun Phrase, Verb Phrase, Preposional Phrase, Adverb Phrase and Adjective Phrase.

A4. A Word is a single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing, used with others or alone to form a sentence and typically shown with a space on either side when written or printed. (e.g. I don’t like the word ‘impossible', but I'm possible.)

A5. An Alphabet is a set of letters or symbols in a fixed order used to represent the basic set of a language. The English alphabet is consisting of 26 letters, from A to Z. ('A' is the first letter of the alphabet.)
