A noun phrase (/naʊn freɪz/) is a phrase with a noun as its head.

For example, in the sentence The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog the subject is the quick brown fox and the object is the lazy dog. Noun phrases can be used as nouns. For example I saw the quick brown fox or The lazy dog ate a chicken.
