Clause
In grammar, a clause is the smallest grammatical unit that can express a complete proposition.[1] A typical clause consists of a subject and a predicate,[2] the latter typically a verb phrase, a verb with any objects and other modifiers. However, the subject is sometimes not expressed, often the case in null-subject languages if the subject is retrievable from context, but it sometimes also occurs in other languages such as English (as in imperative sentences and non-finite clauses).

Oração é todo conjunto linguístico que se estrutura em torno de um verbo ou locução verbal, apresentando sujeito e predicado. O que caracteriza a oração é o verbo, não importando se tal oração tenha sentido ou não sozinha.
