Today we are going to have a look at phrasal verbs, a kind of verbs commonly used in everyday language which are really difficult for us to learn due to their particular morphology and diversity of meanings. Below their definition I give you some links to learn the most commonly used ones.
Phrasal verbs are usually two-word phrases consisting of verb + adverb or verb + preposition. Think of them as you would any other English vocabulary. Study them as you come across them, rather than trying to memorize many at once. Use the list below as a reference guide when you find an expression that you don’t recognize. The example sentences will help you understand the meanings. If you think of each phrasal verb as a separate verb with a specific meaning, you will be able to remember it more easily. Like many other verbs, phrasal verbs often have more than one meaning.
