A phrase is a group of words that make a unit of syntax with a single grammatical function.

A phrase is a small group of words standing together as a conceptual unit, typically forming a component of a clause.

Differently, a sentence is a set of words that is complete in itself, typically containing a subject and predicate, conveying a statement, question, exclamation, or command, and consisting of a main clause and sometimes one or more subordinate clauses.
