What is the difference between a noun phrase and a noun clause? This says to change box b into noun phrases to match box A.

Example: I can't get over... I hear her rude comments.

I can't get over hearing her rude comments.

But in this section of the book, it explaines this as a clause.

  • Grammar again -

    clause is a part of a sentence which has its own subject and object.

    predicate is that part of a sentence which does not make a complete sense of its own but either has a subject or a predicate.

    noun clause and noun phrase both work as a noun in the sentence.

    "I can't get over hearing her rude comments."
    The underlined part is a gerund phrase. You are correct that it is not a clause. Here's an example of a noun clause (underlined):

    I can't stand whoever makes such rude comments.

    This is incorrect:
    "predicate is that part of a sentence which does not make a complete sense of its own but either has a subject or a predicate."

    Here is a good explanation with examples:
