Please explain me what is a noun phrase ,adjective phrase and adverb phrase

Dear Student, 

1.  A phrase that acts like a noun is called a noun phrase.
      A noun phrase consists of a  noun and modifiers 
      Eg: She bought a huge house. (Here the phrase a huge house acts as a noun).
2. An adjective phrase acts as an adjective. 
    Eg: The girl in the shop is my sister.
( The phrase in the shop modifies the noun girl. So it acts as an adjective)
3. A phrase that acts as an adverb is called an adverb phrase.
  Eg: He was running near the road. (The phrase near the road modifies the verb running and acts as an adverb).
