What is a Phrasal Verb?

  • Phrasal verbs are combinations of a verb and an adverb or preposition that form a single phrase.

Types of Phrasal Verbs:

Separable Phrasal Verbs:

  • The verb and particle can be placed together or apart in these types of phrasal verbs.

Example:* “They looked up the word in the dictionary.”***

  • When using a pronoun instead of the subject, the phrasal verb becomes separated.

Example: “They looked it up in the dictionary.”

Inseparable Phrasal Verbs:

  • These phrasal verbs cannot be separated when used in a sentence.

Example: “The bomb will go off in a few mins.

Separating the verb and particle would change the meaning and render the phrasal verb nonsensical.
