What is a phrasal verb?

A phrasal verb is a verb followed by a preposition or an adverb; the combination creates a meaning different from the original verb alone.

Example :

To get  =  to obtain I need to get a new battery for my camera.
To get together  =  to meet Why don’t we all get together for lunch one day?
   
Phrasal verbs are part of a large group of verbs called “multi-part” or "multi-word” verbs. The preposition or adverb that follows the verb is sometimes called a particle.

Transitive and Intransitive Phrasal Verbs :

Some phrasal verbs are transitive.  (A transitive verb always has an object.)

Example : 
  • I made up an excuse. ('Excuse' is the object of the verb.)

Some phrasal verbs are intransitive . (An intransitive verb does not have an object.)

Example : 
  • My car broke down.

Separable or Inseparable Phrasal Verbs  :

Some transitive phrasal verbs are separable. (The object is between the verb and the preposition.)

Example : 
  • I looked the word up in the dictionary.

Some transitive phrasal verbs are inseparable. (The object is placed after the preposition.)

Example : 
  • I will look into the matter as soon as possible.

Some transitive phrasal verbs can take an object in both places.

Example
  • I picked up the book.
  • I picked the book up.

However, if the object is a pronoun, it must be placed between the verb and the preposition.

Example : 
  • I picked it up.
