 A phrasal verb consists of a verb together with a
preposition or adverb that modifies the sense of the
same one. This preposition or adverb can also be
called complement. The same phrasal verb can have
several meanings and very different.
Phrasal verbs which take objects (transitive)
Phrasal verbs which take objects can be separable or inseparable:
• Separable phrasal verbs can remain together when using an object that is a
noun or noun phrase.
Example: I picked Tom up. OR I picked up Tom (Yo recogí a Tom)
• Separable phrasal verbs MUST be separated when a pronoun is used:
Example: We picked him up at the station. NOT We picked up him at the
station. (Lo recogimos en la estación)
• Inseparable phrasal verbs always remain together. It makes no difference if
a noun or pronoun is used.
Example: We set off for the beach. / We set off for it. (Salimos para la playa. /
salimos para ello)
 Phrasal verbs which don’t take objects (intransitive)
• Some phrasal verbs do not take objects. These phrasal verbs
are ALWAYS inseparable.
Example :They thieves got away.
 TIP!
• If you are not sure whether a phrasal verb is separable or inseparable,
ALWAYS use a noun or nouns phrase and DO NOT separate. In this
manner, you will always be correct!
— Separable Phrasal Verbs: bring up, take off
Example: They brought up their children to respect others.
She took off her jacket before she began the lesson.
— Inseparable Phrasal Verbs: look for, set off
Example: She was looking for her books when he arrived.
They set off for a wonderful holiday in Hawaii.
 Three-word phrasal verb
• Some verbs are followed by two prepositions (or adverbs).
These phrasal verbs are ALWAYS inseparable.
Example: I'm looking forward to meeting John. OR I'm looking
forward to meeting him
