Phrasal Verbs List - Charlie, your teacher of English
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.
Abbreviations: sb=somebody; sth=something
Phrasal verbs are very important when it comes to speaking English. They are
made up of a verb and an adverb, or an adjective or both. You are going to see
a series of tables in which phrasal verbs are listed together with their meanings
and examples. Almost all the data is written in American English.
The abbreviations sb, sth, and swh refer to somebody, something and somewhere.
