is the name given to an English verb which is composed of two or three words.
One verb is combined with a preposition (like on, in, under) or an adverb (like up, down, away).
Sometimes a phrasal verb can have a meaning that is very different to the meaning of at least
one of those two or three words separately. Some text books call these verbs multi-word
Phrasal verbs are used more frequently in everyday speech than in formal, official writing or speaking.

REMEMBER: There are four
types of phrasal verbs:
1. Phrasal verbs which take objects and are separable
2. Phrasal verbs which take objects and are inseparable
3. Phrasal verbs which do not take objects (these are always inseparable)
4. Three-word phrasal verbs
