For prepositional verbs see Unit 126.

A Introduction

B Understanding phrasal verbs

Some phrasal verbs are easy to understand.

Tom asked Melanie to come in.The man in front turned roundand stared at me. The meanings are clear if you know the words come, in, turnand round.

But many phrasal verbs are idiomatic. The verb + adverb has a special meaning. Fortunately the plan came off.(= succeeded) Why did you turn downsuch a good offer? (= refuse) I can't make outif it's a man or a woman over there. (= see clearly)

Sometimes a phrasal verb has the same meaning as a one-word verb.

find out discover leave out omit send out distribute

go back = return make up = invent (a story) throw away = discard

go on = continue put off postpone turn up arrive

The phrasal verb is usually more informal than the one-word verb.

C Word order with phrasal verbs

When a phrasal verb has an object, the object can go either before or after the adverb.


Melanie tookher coat off.or Melanie took offher coat.

I wrotethe number down.OR I wrote down the number.

Who letthe cat out?OR Who let outthe cat?

A long object goes after the adverb.

The gang have carried out a number of bank raidsin the last few months. Why don't you try on that dress in the window?

A pronoun (e.g. it, them)always goes before the adverb. Melanie felt hot in her coat, so she took it off.not She too off it.

There have been a number of raids. The police know who carried them out.not The police know who caried out them.
