Tarea 15-19 de Abril de 2013, Phrasal verbs

Resuelve el ejercicio de acuerdo a lo que se explica en el siguiente apunte. Para poder tomar en cuenta tu tarea deberás copiar tanto el apunte como el ejercicio resuelto en tu libreta.


Phrasal verbs are mainly used in spoken English and informal texts. (The more formal a conversation or text, the less phrasal verbs are found.)
Phrasal verbs consist of a verb plus a particle (prepositionadverb). The particle can change the meaning of the verb completely, e.g.:
  • look up – consult a reference book (look a word up in a dictionary)
  • look for – seek (look for her ring)
  • look forward – anticipate with pleasure (look forward to meeting someone)
There are no rules that might explain how phrasal verbs are formed correctly - all you can do is look them up in a gooddictionary and study their meanings.

The most frequently used phrasal verbs are formed with:

Position of the Particle

The particle is placed either after the verb or after the object.
Write down the word. / Write the word down.
If the object is a pronoun, however, the particle has to be placed after the pronoun (object).
Write it down.
