Definition of verb phrase in English:
The part of a sentence containing the verb and any direct or indirect object, but not the subject.
- The subject nominal is in the oblique form and the verb phrase lacks tense and agreement markers.
- But that verb doesn't have to be the very first word in the verb phrase.
- Note the future tense employed by the operative verb phrase here: will support.
