I tried in some grammar forums without getting a reply so I figured I'll try asking you native english speakers here about this. I can't figure out which of these two sentences is correct, or if both are. I suspect both are, but which do you think I should use? It's used as an info popup for the user, the name could be any name. 1. "Emma, select a word or phrase." 2. "Emma, select a word or a phrase." I first used option 1, but then got a little confused and now I just dont know if I need to use "a" in front of "phrase" too? Thanks in advance for helping me out!
