Phrasal Verbs. Grammar

1. PHRASAL VERBS
A phrasal verb is a verb and a particle like: out, on, over, etc. which has a different meaning from the verb on its own.

There are 5 kinds of Phrasal Verbs:
1. INTRANSITIVE VERBS ( No object needed)

3. SEPARABLE TRANSITIVE VERBS. SOME TRANSITIVE VERBS ARE SEPARABLE

    Turn off the radio , please. = Turn the radio off, please.
    But if we use the pronoun "it" instead of the noun "radio", we must always separate the particle from its verb; "Turn it on, please."
