Auszug. © Nachdruck mit Genehmigung. Alle Rechte vorbehalten.: 1 HOW PHRASAL VERBS WORK

Phrasal verbs are a combination of two parts, verb and particle (a preposition or adverb). Both parts are important to understand the full meaning.

However, it is often the particle which gives the basic meaning and which allows us to see connections with other phrasal verbs. For example:

·He goes back home. = He returns home.
·He comes back home. = He returns home.
·He gets back home. = He returns home.

Back is used in all of these sentences to mean return.

If we know back often means return then it is easy to understand the following examples:

·He walks back home. = He returns home (walking).
·He runs back home. = He returns home (running).
·He drives back home. = He returns home (driving).

And also:

·He gives the ball back. = He returns the ball.
·He throws the ball back. = He returns the ball (by throwing it).
·He kicks the ball back. = He returns the ball (by kicking it).

These are all literal examples but we can see the same logic in metaphorical uses of back:

·He thinks back. = He returns to the past (thinking).
·The film flashes back to the past. = The films returns to the past.
·The song takes me back. = The song returns me to the past.

The same logic applies to other particles and phrasal verbs.

·He walks in. = He enters (walking).
·He runs in. = He enters (running).
·He drives in. = He enters (driving).


·She asked him in. = She asked him to enter.
·The burglar broke in. = The burglar entered (by force).
·He was voted in. = He entered (by being voted).

Understanding the meaning of a particle not only helps us to understand a specific phrasal verb but also helps us to see connections between different phrasal verbs.

It is necessary to understand that phrasal verbs are a combination of two parts and that both parts are essential to fully understand the meaning. It is also necessary to see how we can combine different verbs and particles to express different nuances and details.

Part 1 of the book focuses on how these combinations are made. It uses literal meanings to show this more clearly and is divided into three sections.

The importance of the particle in giving meaning to the combination is most clearly and easily seen with verbs of movement and especially with GO.

We can give more details about how exactly a movement is made by using different, more specific, more specific verbs of movement.

Particles can also be combined with many other verbs to show the direction in which an action is made, or to show where we move another object.

Part 2 will look at the literal meanings of the particles and how these can be combined with different verbs.
Part 3 will look at the further meanings of the particles where the meaning is not so clearly linked to the literal meaning (although often it is related).Again we will see how these particle meanings can be combined with different verbs.
