So here we are in the streets of Bournemouth one of the most commonly asked questions
I get apart from how come you look so
young for your age is how do we learn phrasal firms
I'm often asked if I can recommend a book on phrasal verbs I can it's called the
however because I'm feeling quite generous we're going to
take a look today at some of the most
common phrasal verbs that we use every single
day of the week look at how they work
just a few different types I'm gonna get
yeah some common phrasal verbs that we
use every day and we use phrasal verbs
every single day of the week how do you
feel about phrasal verbs
Students often worry about phrasal verbs
they are a problematic
often as the literal usage meaning and
often as a more idiomatic meaning
however they are verbs behave like a
verbs, verbs with a particle
I like to think of it as a vocabulary
you even know them or you don't but
the best way to learn phrasal verbs in
often you will hear a new phrasal verb in the street or talking to English friends and
thats time to make a note of it and
then ask them what it means or look it up
Phrasal verbs are mainly used informally, conversational and we often have a latin based word which is more formal.
everytime you hear one put in the notebook and then start to use it I mean if you don't use
them you gonna forget them anyway. Now back to Pete in the studio
A Phrasal consists of verb + an adverb or particle the purpose
of the particle is to change the meaning
of the verb for example carry on the
verb carry, I carry my bag, carry on means
continue so this verb + this particle
has changed the meaning of the verb
there are two types of phrasal group a
phrasal verbs without an object
group B phrasal verbs with an object now
group A are easy for example
my car has broken down no object
phrasal verbs with an object are
slightly more complicated some of them
are separable and some of them are
inseparable they cannot be separated
let's look at separable phrasal verbs
I'm going to use the verb take off
she took off her jacket take off past
simple took off take off means remove the
opposite is put on, take off put on.
Be careful not all phrasal verbs have phrasal verbs opposite
the separable phrasal verbs behave in a
particular way we can have the noun phrase
after the phrasal verb she took off
her jacket however you can also separate
the verb from the particle she took her
jacket off so we have separated the verb
from the particle and we put the noun
phrase between them both are possible
there's no real difference however if the
object is a personal pro noun it must go
in the middle position she took off her jacket she
took her jacket off, she took it off
the personal pro noun has to go in the middle
position not in the end position.
to show you an example of an inseparable
phrasalverb I'm going to use look after look
after means to care for he looks after
his mother, he looks after her, he looks his mother after, now as you get more
familiar with phrasal verbs hopefully
you begin to develop an instinct for
when it sounds wrong he looks his mother after doesn't sound good
however as I said before when you're not
sure check in a dictionary the
dictionary will tell you whether it's
seperable or inseparable
take off is a great example of how phrasal verbs
work how they can be very confusing
often there is more than one meaning
here we have take off she took off her
jacket which means removed however we
also used take off for aeroplanes the
airplane took off, take off is the opposite of land so it's
the same verb with a completely different
meaning and also they behave differently
take off requires an object when we mean
remove take off for airplanes has no
object so the same phrasal verb can have
different meanings and also behave
good English Dictionary will have a list
of the common phrasal verbs take on take
it goes on I hope that was useful just
remember don't be afraid of them
think of it as vocabulary you either know
it or you don't.
