What are phrasal verbs?
A phrasal verb (also known as a multi-word verb) is made up of a verb and one or two particles (adverb and/or preposition) and operate as a single vocabulary item.
Some phrasal verbs are easier to understand from the individual words because they have a more literal meaning. Others are idiomatic and cannot be understood from the individual works, so it is more difficult to guess the meaning.
