  • The multi-word sense (ie a string of two or more orthographic words, perhaps not including open compounds). Contrast a conflicting definition: 'Noun phrases do not have to contain strings of words. In fact, they can contain just one word' [UCL ... Internet Grammar] Note that this assumes that a 'string' contains over 1 word, again a debated usage. // If we allow 'phrase' to cover single words here, 'SWR's are subsumed by 'Phrase requests'. But arguably a change needs to be made to tags. May 4 at 14:05
