400 Common Phrasal VerbsPhrasal verbs are word groups that include a verb combined with a preposition or an adverb. They are used not only as verbs but as nouns, such as "comedown", "breakup", or "show-off", and as adjectives, such as "spaced-out", "burned-out", "broken-down", and many others. Most phrasal verbs are NOT informal, slang, or improper for educated speech or formal writing. Exactly the opposite is true - most phrasal verbs are acceptable at all levels of spoken or written English. In fact, for many of the phrasal verbs in this textbook, there is no alternative to the phrasal verb - there is no other way to say it! This book presents 400 common phrasal verbs with examples showing how they are used in everyday American English. Sample sentences and hundreds of examples and exercises will help sharpen your ability to speak and comprehend this essential part of American English. If you're an ESL or EFL student preparing to take a language exam in English, this book will help improve your language command in the often tricky area of phrasal verb usage.
