    Phrase- a small group of words standing together as a conceptual unit, typically forming a component of a clause.

    7) A short story is a brief fictional prose narrative that is shorter than a novel and that usually deals with only a few characters.

    8) Short story- a story with a fully developed theme but significantly shorter and less elaborate than a novel.
