    Yes, there is a difference.

    A phrasal verb is a multi-word verb (click here). They consist of a verb plus an adverb or a preposition or both.

    A verb phrase is a term used to describe constituent structure within a given sentence. A verb phrase consists of a verb plus its object.


    EXAMPLE

    • Hang up the phone.
      • the underlined portion is a multi-word verb, and the entire sentence is a verb phrase.

    Agreed.

    Not agreed. The visible part of the entire sentence is the predicate. The subject is covert. There is no (first) auxiliary (=operator) in the sentence, thus the predicate and the predication correspond exactly. The verb phrase does not include the arguments of the main verb, only the auxiliary/-ies (provided there is any) and the main verb.

    See Quirk et. al., 1985, 3.52., p149.

    In addition to the verb, this includes auxiliaries, objects, object complements, and other constituents apart from the subject.
