    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.

    phrase-an appositive phrase to be exact

    An appositive is a noun or noun phrase that renames another noun right beside it . The appositive can be a short or long combination of words

    All clauses have a verb.
