Overview

The Importance of Phrasal Verbs

Students need to master phrasal verbs to be proficient in English because native speakers use them all the time in both formal and informal writing and conversation. The number of phrasal verbs, like the world’s population, keeps growing and growing. (The Longman Dictionary of Phrasal Verbs lists over 12,000 entries.) Monosyllabic verbs (e.g., take, put, buy) are continually joining with particles (e.g., in, out, on, off) to form new verbs (e.g., chill out, log on). For most students of English, learning how to use phrasal verbs is a major challenge. Phrasal verbs occur in Germanic languages but very few others. They are semantically and grammatically complex. So it’s no wonder that students avoid them, or why so many teachers and grammar books cover them in only a superficial way. This book will give students the foundation they need to develop an active understanding and use of phrasal verbs—and they’ll have fun in the process.
