PHRASAL VERBS

What is a phrasal verb?

A phrasal verb is a combination of a verb and a preposition/adverb that has a meaning different from the original verb.

give (verb)
give (verb) + up (preposition) = surrender

If the phrasal verb is followed by an object, it's transitive.

give up something = stop doing something

If the phrasal verb is not followed by an object, it's intransitive.

give up = surrender

Some transitive verbs are separable. This means that the object can be placed between the verb and the preposition/adverb, or after the preposition/adverb.

give something up = give up something = stop doing something

The only way to learn phrasal verbs is by heart. Try to re-read them often until they stick to your memory.
