A question for native english speakers

I tried in some grammar forums without getting a reply so I figured I'll try asking you native english speakers here about this. I can't figure out which of these two sentences is correct, or if both are. I suspect both are, but which do you think I should use?

It's used as an info popup for the user, the name could be any name.

1. "Emma, select a word or phrase."
2. "Emma, select a word or a phrase."

I first used option 1, but then got a little confused and now I just dont know if I need to use "a" in front of "phrase" too?

Thanks in advance for helping me out!

Both are fine. I would use the first.

Agreed. Both are okay, but the first would be more common.

Thanks! That's my googling also says its more common but both are used, and thats what I initially thought as well. And with two of you saying the same, I'll go with that.
