minor sentence
Definition -
(1) A sentence that does not have a main verb in it — e.g. No way! — but which is understood as a complete unit of meaning. As opposed to a major sentence where the subject and predicate are present.

(2) A sentence-type that has very limited productivity in a language — e.g. an English sentence like No Way! which doesn't have a subject and predicate.
