There anr thousands of pharasal verbs in english, some are very common. Some are rare. Some have more than one meaning. This book practises over 700 with more than 1,000 meanings. This book organises them in diffenrent ways by particle, by verb and by topic. The more diffenrenr ways you meet these verbs, the more you will learn.
The inspiration for The Ultimate Phrasal Verb Book came about when a student asked
me for a textbook to help her learn the meanings of common phrasal verbs. I had
nothing to offer. The only textbook focusing on common verbs that I could give her
contains not one phrasal verb — it teaches arise but not get up, awake but not wake
up, seek but not look for. differentiation is made between recognized adjectives derived from past participles and past participles with adjectival meaning.
