  1. 1. What are phrasal verbs? <br />
  2. 2. A phrasal verb is a verb plus a preposition or adverb which creates a meaning different from the original verb.<br />
  3. 3. Example:I ran into my teacher at the movies last night.<br />run + into = meetHe ran away when he was 15.<br />run + away = leave home<br />
  4. 4. Phrasal verbs can be transitive and intrasitive.<br />
  5. 5. An intransitive verb cannot be followed by an object.<br />Example:He suddenly showed up. "show up" cannot take an object<br />
  6. 6. A transitive verb can be followed by an object.<br />Example:I made upthe story. "story" is the object of "make up"<br />
  7. 7. Some transitive phrasal verbs are separable. The object is placed between the verb and the preposition.<br />Example:I talkedmy motherinto letting me borrow the car.She lookedthe phone numberup.<br />
  8. 8. Some transitive phrasal verbs are inseparable. The object is placed after the preposition.<br />Example:I ran intoan old friend yesterday.They are looking intothe problem.<br />
  9. 9. Some transitive phrasal verbs can take an object in both places.<br />Example:I lookedthe numberup in the phone book.I looked upthe number in the phone book.<br />
  10. 10. You should remember that native speakers of English tend to use phrasal verbs in everyday conversation and generally reserve one-word verbs (i.e. "investigate" instead of "look into") for more formal occasions such as business letters etc.<br />
  11. 11. If you think of each phrasal verb as a separate verb with a specific meaning, you will be able to remember it more easily.<br />
