Phrasal Verbs

Phrasal Verbs

A phrasal verb is a verb that consists of two or three words; its meaning is different from the meaning those words would have if they are considered each one separately. For example, the meaning of carry out (=do) in the sentence Scientists carried out an experiment is not related to the normal meaning of “carry” or the normal meaning of “out”. We cannot guess the meaning of pull up (=stop) in the sentence A car pulled up outside the house even if we know what “pull” and “up” mean. Even though answer back (=answer rudely) is related to the meaning of the verb “answer”, this does not help us to understand what answer back means.

Most phrasal verbs consist of two words: get up, go off, turn on, make out, and deal with. The first word is a verb, the second word is a particle, which is either an adverb (“out”) or a preposition (“with”). There are also some three-word phrasal verbs: catch up with, look forward to.

Verbs which are used with an adverb or preposition but do not combine to produce a special meaning are not phrasal verbs. In sentence such as The boy fell off his bike and We carried some chairs out into the garden, “fall off” and “carry out” are not phrasal verbs because their meaning can be worked out if we know what “fall” and “off”, “carry” and “out” mean.

Some verbs are only ever used with a particular preposition or adverb: for example, rely on and amount to. Other phrasal verbs mean almost the same as the verb on its own, but the adverb adds emphasis or contains the idea of an action being completed or continued: eat up, hurry up, toil away. Some phrasal verbs are used with “it” – hit it off, jump to it – and others are used with a reflexive pronoun – pride yourself on, lend itself to.

One and the same phrasal verb may have more than one meaning, which depends on the context:

1. Catch up on smth.: to do something that one did not have time to do earlier: I needed a couple of days to catch up on my school work.

I spent most of the weekend trying to catch up on my sleep.

2. Catch up on smth.: to get the most recent information about something: He’s been away for a month, so it will take him a while to catch up on what’s been going on.

3. Catch up with smb.: if something bad catches up with you, it starts to affect you after a period of time in which it did not: The player admitted that his long-term knee injury is finally beginning to catch up with him.

4. Catch up with smb: to discover that someone has done something wrong, and punish him for it: Hughes had avoided paying tax for years before the authorities finally caught up with him.

5. Catch up with smb.: to meet someone you know after not seeing him for a period of time: She’s back in the country and keen to catch up with family and friends. I’ll catch up with you later (= used to tell someone that you will talk to them later): I’ve got to dash off a meeting now – I’ll catch up with you later.

6. Catch up with smth.: to do something that needs to be done, because you did not have time to do it earlier: Friday is a quiet day, so I usually have chance to catch up with my paperwork.

7. Catch up with smth.: to get the most recent information about something: The event provides an opportunity for members to catch up with each other’s news.

The position of the object in the phrasal verb can vary. For example, at turn on (= make something start working), there are two grammatical patterns: turn on smth., turn smth. on.They show that the object can come either after the phrasal verb, or between the main verb and the particle:

I turned on the radio and listened to the six o’clock news.

Could you turn the oven on, if you’re going in the kitchen?

The phrasal verb nod off has only one grammatical pattern: nod off. This is because the verb does not take an object: I missed the end of her TOPIC – I think I must have nodded off.

The grammatical patterns of the phrasal verb join in (=take part in an activity with other people) are as follows: join in, join in smth. They show that join in can be used without an object, or with an object immediately after the phrasal verb: When we get to the chorus, I want everybody to join in. Politely, he joined in the laughter.

The grammatical pattern of the phrasal verb talk into (=persuade someone to do something, especially something they are unwilling to do) is: talk smb. into smth. This shows that talk into must have two objects. The first is a person, and the second is a thing: I should never have let you talk me into this crazy scheme.

Phrasal verbs such as turn on, put off, and rip off can all take an object between the main verb and the particle, or after the phrasal verb. They are called “separable” phrasal verbs because their two parts can be separated: Can you turn the oven on for me? Can you turn on the oven for me?

With this type of verb two more rules apply:

1. If the object is a pronoun, then this pronoun must come between the verb and the adverb: If you’re not listening to the radio, I’ll turn it off (not I’ll turn off it).

2. If the object is a long phrase, it should come after the phrasal verb: The French carried out a series of six nuclear tests.

The phrasal verbs can be transformed into nouns and adjectives – derivatives with a slightly changed word form. The noun blackout (written in one word instead of two) comes from the phrasal verb black out (=suddenly become unconscious), and the adjective made-up (written through dash instead of two separate words) comes from the phrasal verb make up (=invent a story, name, etc.).

Sometimes the phrasal verbs can take a preposition:

Back out: to decide not to do something that one has agreed to do: The couple who were going to buy our house backed out at the last minute.

Back out of:She’s made a promise and she can’t back out of it now.

Very often phrasal verbs are used in common phrases:

Bet on smth.: to feel sure that something will happen, especially so that it influences what you decide to do: Traders who had bet on a rise in share prices lost money.

Don’t bet on it/I wouldn’t bet on it: “Do you think they’ll let me work for them again?” I wouldn’t bet on it.

Phrasal verbs are highly idiomatic and most of them should be just memorized.

Just Because Your Business Isn - t a

Just Because Your Business Isn't a .COM Doesn't Mean it Won't Succeed

For the past nine years I have owned and operated two non-web based businesses. The first one I sold when I graduated high school, it was a landscape construction and maintenance company. My second and current company does environmentally friendly industrial concrete cleaning. While both businesses are profitable they did not seem to fit into the paths laid out for young entrepreneurs. For a field that prides itself on thinking outside the box, the boxes are incredibly well defined.

Our twitter feeds and bookshelves are filled with stories of tech entrepreneurs having millions of active users or writing some new app, but what about the things that aren’t in plain sight? What about the company that changes the air filters in your office? What about the company that keeps your trees trimmed or your dumpster empty? These old school companies keep the world spinning.

You may be saying “Hey but all of their services are the same…why are they noteworthy?” But all of their services are not the same, each company that has achieved considerable success has some secret sauce. This does not have to mean lines of code or patented molecule. Secret sauce can be anything from knowing the optimal time to change an air filter to managing 1000 hourly laborers.

Some of the secret sauces that I like:

1(800)GOT-JUNK I love this company because all they do is take away your old junk. BUT your old junk is taken away legally by uniformed employees in a clean truck. You also know how much it is going to cost before they show up. 1(800)GOT-JUNK took away all of the things that people hated about throwing away old shit. Their secret sauce isn’t complicated, its just the right market and the right application.

RotoRooter This company took a special tool (Drain unclogger/water blaster) and built a business around the services you could do with it. After they made a name for themselves for unplugging drains with this tool they expanded to offer many other plumbing services. The cool thing about RotoRooter is that a drain blaster is not a complicated nor horribly expensive tool. They offered 24hr emergency services and knowledgeable technicians along with outstanding service. This basic model propelled them to a national company.

Freightwing Again I love things that are simple and have a huge impact. This little composite wing sits under a semi trailer and reduces fuel use by 7%. I hope that seems as huge to you as it does to me. This means that this device pays for itself in a few cross country trips. It is idiotic for any company with semi trailers to not have these installed. There isn’t anything hiding in the picture, all this thing does is deflect air. No code, no chips no sensors. This company is genius, they made a product that is so cheap to install, takes no effort to use and saves fuel. It also does not last forever (accidents, rocks, deer) meaning repeat customers.

Just because your company isn’t web based doesn’t mean you can forget about computers.

Please don’t do what I did with my landscape company. Don’t forget about your website and let it look bad, don’t forget to allow your customers to pay online! (If it makes sense) Though your business model would probably work advertising only in the yellow pages, don’t do it! We rely on the internet for every part of our life but every part of out life does not rely on the internet.

You think we will be able to wire a house with a few keystrokes in five years? I wouldn’t bet on it. People are still the krux of business and they will be for the foreseeable future. So remember that internet companies are not the only option. They are just one of the options.

Consumers are going to the web FIRST to search out companies. If you’re not on the web, chances are highly likely that you’re going to fall behind the other places that are.

Just having a website with a phone number and address could be enough. It’s all about the presence. It’s about knowing where your customers are going to find information. And the internet is where they’re going.

This is a great reminder, and it is something that I forget sometimes. I work at a technology based business incubator in the Indianapolis area and I run my own startup related blog/website.

I actually just recently launched a new little quiz application titled “Is Your Startup the Next Facebook?” at http://www.businessplanexecutivesummary.com

It has been quite a hit, but it does cause me to think, why is everyone so interested in creating the next Facebook. Wouldn’t it be a great victory if you created the next 1(800) GOT-JUNK? Or the next RotoRooter?

Maybe I will create a new application that tests whether or not you have what it takes to create the next Freightwing! Anyway thanks for the article and good luck with DevilWash.

Agreed Adam. I think the key is that people are out there creating the next RotoRooter’s but companies like that are simply not as fun to talk about. Hot tech startups and millions of users are simply more press friendly.

I really hope to start discovering more of those companies to interview the founders for Under30CEO because I think there is a huge lack of coverage of that part of the business world.

I can totally relate to trying to boil down what you do to the best least common denominator and then being as transparent as possible – it’s really helpful for people like me who call themselves a consultant. I started http://www.financiallydigital.com to be a living blog counter part to my physical business and have loved the feed back it gets. I have to admit though, if I didn’t worry about my readership and my online impact I might have let myself fall into the same trap as your early landscaping biz. Great reminder that keeping things simple and transparent are important. Giving your online footprint as much importance as your in-person one can really augment your presence and reach 🙂

Great article. I can relate to both running an internet company as well as working with real people and service providers face to face at http://www.prohomereferrals.com

I have recently started a site, the information you provide on this web site has helped me tremendously. Thank you for all of your time & work.

    Bruno Major Lyrics - Wouldn t Mean A Thing

    "Wouldn't Mean A Thing" lyrics Bruno Major Lyrics

    Or the pyramids in West Peru

    I could travel back in time and hear Al Green sing

    It wouldn't mean a thing without you

    I could sail across the Indian Ocean

    And bathe in the reflection of the moon

    I could find the buried treasure of ancient kings

    But it wouldn't mean a thing without you

    No, it wouldn't mean a thing without you

    Help me see the world differently

    Be a better man than I'd ever be on my own

    I'll give you the rest of me

    You're the reason I rest easily

    It's the love and loyalty you've shown

    Bet it all on red only to lose

    If money comes my way I won't be complaining

    It wouldn't mean a thing without you

    No, it wouldn't mean a thing without you

    Help me see the world differently

    Be a better man than I'd ever be on my own

    I'll give you the rest of me

    You're the reason I rest easily

    It's the love and loyalty you've shown

    Or the pyramids in West Peru

    I could travel back in time and hear Al Green sing

    I could travel back in time and hear Al Green sing

    It wouldn't mean a thing with out you

    No, it wouldn't mean a thing without you
