I take a function phrase. The definition is up to you eg. List

a = {cat, E, in, the, hat, E, okay, fine, E};
Select[c = phrase[];
        FoldList[If[#2 =!= E, Append[#1, #2], c = phrase[]] &, c, a
        # =!= phrase[] &]

{phrase[cat], phrase[in], phrase[in, the], phrase[in, the, hat], 
phrase[okay], phrase[okay, fine]}
