  2. 2. PHRASAL VERBS<br />The phrasal verbs or &quot;verbs compounds&quot; are a very particular aspect of English and often causes confusion among people who are learning the language. <br />The phrasal verbs are idiomatic expressions that are formed by combining verbs with prepositions or adverbs. This results in new phrasal verbs with a meaning very different from what the dictionary gives for individual verbs. <br />The compound verbs are widely used in both written English and the spoken. There always new phrasal verbs as grammatical structure of these is a very flexible to create new verbs and expressions. Moreover, the same phrasal verb can have several meanings.<br />

EXAMPLES<br />VERB  +  PREPOSITION  +  OBJECTVerb + preposition + object (transitive verb takes an object) The preposition is placed between the basic verb and object.<br />Blowing up the balloons for the party was easy<br /> Adverbial particle + VERB + OBJECT (transitive verb takes an object) 1) If the object is a noun, adverbial particle can be placed after the verb or after the object base.<br />The old man gave away his houses.The old man gave his houses away.<br />2) If the object is a pronoun, the adverbial particle is placed at the end.  <br /> The oldman gave them away.<br />

  7. 7. PREPOSITIONAL VERBS <br /><ul><li>Prepositional verbs are phrasal verbs that contain a preposition, which is always followed by its nominal object. They are different from inseparable transitive particle verbs, because the object still follows the preposition if it is a pronoun
  8. 8. Examples:
  9. 9. -On Fridays, we look after our grandchildren.
  10. 10. We look after them. (not *look them after)
