Transcript

  • 1. What are phrasal verbs?
  • 2. A phrasal verb is a verb plus a preposition or adverb which creates a meaning different from the original verb.
  • 3. Example:I ran into my teacher at the movies last night.
    run + into = meetHe ran away when he was 15.
    run + away = leave home
  • 4. Phrasal verbs can be transitive and intrasitive.
  • 5. An intransitive verb cannot be followed by an object.
    Example:He suddenly showed up. "show up" cannot take an object
  • 6. A transitive verb can be followed by an object.
    Example:I made upthe story. "story" is the object of "make up"
  • 7. Some transitive phrasal verbs are separable. The object is placed between the verb and the preposition.
    Example:I talkedmy motherinto letting me borrow the car.She lookedthe phone numberup.
  • 8. Some transitive phrasal verbs are inseparable. The object is placed after the preposition.
    Example:I ran intoan old friend yesterday.They are looking intothe problem.
  • 9. Some transitive phrasal verbs can take an object in both places.
    Example:I lookedthe numberup in the phone book.I looked upthe number in the phone book.
  • 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.
  • 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.
