What would be the equivalent in Spanish of "awkward phrase." This suggests a phrase which could technically be correct but does not "sound" right.

    This matter has been discussed several times before. The answer really depends on context. If you are writing a report about a child who uses non elegant phrases, it would be more diplomatic to say "frases poco elegantes".
