Whoa! Phrasal-prepositional verbs..they're not so hard :)

Hi everyone!
Here is more on phrasal verbs.Remember there are 3 types of multi-word verbs:  phrasal verbs, prepositional verbs and phrasal-prepositional verbs.

Let's look at phrasal-prepositional verbs.  In a nut shell, phrasal-prepositional verbs are made from a verb, adverb and a preposition.   and must have a direct object.  Prepositional verbs can not be separated. Phrasal-prepositional verbs end with a preposition and can take a direct object.  Like prepositional verbs these verbs cannot be separated!

Here are some common Phrasal-prepositional Verbs:
Look up to
Look forward to
Hand over to
Get out of
Get back to
Come out of
Put up with
Ran out of

Happy Teaching! Lori
