Phrasal Verbs

  1. 1. Phrasal Verbs<br />By Dawn<br />Skype English School<br />http://skype-englishschool.com<br />
  2. 2. Phrasal verbs are part of a large group of verbs called &quot;multi-word verbs&quot;. Phrasal verbs and other multi-word verbs are an important part of the English language. Multi-word verbs, including phrasal verbs, are very common, especially in spoken English. <br />A multi-word verb is a verb like &quot;pick up&quot;, &quot;turn on&quot; or &quot;get on with&quot;. For convenience, many people refer to all multi-word verbs as phrasal verbs. These verbs consist of a basic verb + another word or words. <br />Phrasal Verbs and other multi-word verbs<br />http://skype-englishschool.com<br />
  3. 3. The other word(s) can be prepositions and/or adverbs. The two or three words that make up multi-word verbs form a short &quot;phrase&quot; - which is why these verbs are often all called &quot;phrasal verbs&quot;.<br />The important thing to remember is that a multi-word verb is still a verb. &quot;Get&quot; is a verb. &quot;Get up&quot;, is also a verb, a different verb. &quot;Get&quot; and &quot;get up&quot; are two different verbs. They do not have the same meaning. So you should treat each multi-word verb as a separate verb, and learn it like any other verb.<br />More About Phrasal Verbs <br />http://skype-englishschool.com<br />
