: : Hi!
: : Could anyone tell me the meaning of " phrase through" in the following sentence?
: : "She starts pounding on the door, and inadvertently phrases through it just as Lance is passing by."
: : Any help would be appreciated.

: "Phrases through" doesn't make sense at all. It must be a typo for "passes through" or "pierces through" or something else.
Hi,R.Berg,I just made a howler. It should be "phase through". Even so it still looks confusing to me.
