Help with independent and dependent clauses!!?
In the sentance: The two men, Bill and the Narrator, are best friends."
Would "Bill and the Narrator" be a dependent clause or would be a phrase. I need help i'm so confused!

I would say that it is dependent because it cannot stand alone. I believe that it would need a verb to be independent.
Don't take my word for it.
