Mensagem: 

The meaning of these words tends to overlap.

 

A sentence can be made up of 1 or more clauses – so in some cases sentence and clause are equal, but in many a clause is merely a part of a sentence.

 

In a legal sense, a statement is a formal presentation of witnesses' evidence.


In a general sense a statement is a claim, an assertion etc

 

The term phrase can overlap with statement but also has specific musical meaning and in terms of language tends to suggest an established arrangement of words (an idiom etc)
