Phrasal Verbs in American English provides useful information and guided exercises for ESL/EFL language learners. The contents of Phrasal Verbs come from written and spoken corpora of American English. The most frequent phrasal verbs are taught along with their associated words (collocates). This means that rather than focussing on a phrasal verb such as "get into," this book covers common phrases: "get into an argumen," "get into trouble," etc. Thus the book covers the phrasal verbs and phrases that the learner is likely to meet in everyday situations.

The book traces the evolution of the English verb-particle construction (‘phrasal verb’) from Indo-European and Germanic up to the present. A contrastive survey of the basic semantic and syntactic characteristics of verb-particle constructions in the present-day Germanic languages shows that the English construction is structurally unremarkable and its analysis as a periphrastic word-formation is proposed. From a cross-linguistic and comparative perspective the Old English prefix verbs are identified as preverbs and the shift towards postposition of the particles is connected to the development of more general patterns of word order. The interplay of phonological, morphological, syntactic and semantic factors in the loss of the native prefixes in the history of English is investigated. In this context the question is discussed to what extent the older prefixes were replaced by particles and borrowed prefixes, how the characteristic etymological and semantic properties of the Modern English phrasal verbs can be explained and what role they play in the lexicon. The author argues that their common perception as particularly ‘English’, ‘colloquial’ and ‘informal’ has its origin in the eighteenth-century normative tradition.

Cognitive Linguistic Approaches To Teaching Vocabulary And Phraseology

Mastering the vocabulary of a foreign language is one of the most daunting tasks that language learners face. The immensity of the task is underscored by the realisation that it is not only single words but also numerous standardised phrases (idioms, collocations, etc.) that need to be acquired. There is thus a clear need for instructional methods that help learners tackle this task, and yet few proposals for vocabulary instruction have so far gone beyond techniques for rote-learning and familiar means of promoting of noticing. The reason for this is that vocabulary and phraseology have long been assumed arbitrary. The volumeoffers a long-overdue alternative by exploring and exploiting the presence of linguistic 'motivation' - or, systematic non-arbitrariness - in the lexicon. The first half of the volume reports ample empirical evidence of the pedagogical effectiveness of presenting vocabulary to learners as non-arbitrary. The data reported indicate that the proposed instructional methods can benefit when both the nature of the target lexis and the basic cognitive orientations of particular learners are taken into account. The first half of the book mostly targets lexis that has already attracted a fair amount of attention from Cognitive Linguists in the past (e.g. phrasal verbs and figurative idioms). The second half broadens the scope considerably by revealing the non-arbitrariness of diverse other lexical patterns, including collocations and word partnerships generally. This is achieved by recognising some long-neglected dimensions of linguistic motivation - etymological and phonological motivation, in particular. Concrete suggestions are made for putting the non-arbitrary nature of words and phrases to good use in instructed language learning. The volumeis therefore of interest not only to applied linguists and researchers in Second Language Acquisition/Foreign Language Teaching, but also to second and foreign language teaching professionals.

Multi Word Verbs In Early Modern English

The topic of this book fits in with the recently growing interest in phraseology and fixedness in English. It offers a description of multi-word verbs in the language of the 17th and 18th centuries, an important formative period for Modern English. For the first time, multi-word verbs are treated together as a group, as it is argued that phrasal verbs, prepositional verbs, phrasal-prepositional verbs, verb-adjective combinations and verbo-nominal combinations share defining characteristics. These characteristics are also reflected in similar possibilities of usage, in particular the subtle modification of verbal meaning and these verbs' potential for topicalization structures, both leading to a greater expressiveness. Using a new text collection, the Lampeter Corpus of Early Modern English Tracts (1640-1740), the study provides a description of the multi-word verb types found, their syntactic behaviour, and their semantic structure. The composition of the corpus also allowed the examination of the development of these verbs over time and in different registers. The corpus study is supplemented by an investigation of attitudes towards multi-word verbs with the help of contemporary works on language, leading to a more speculative discussion of the factors influencing the choice between multi-word and simplex verbs.

This complete guide to over 850 Phrasal Verbs used in daily life by native speakers, also includes a section with over 200 business idioms and phrasal verbs. Cross that bridge and start mastering the language today. About phrasal verbs Phrasal verbs, or multi - word verbs as they are often referred to, can be rather daunting for non natives of the English language. A mistake in using the wrong particle or the wrong word order can completely change the intended meaning. This can lead to misunderstandings which can either be horrific or hilarious. Students of the English language are not expected to be able to remember all the phrasal verbs - they are too numerous - but they should be familiar with the most common ones and they should also be able to recognise their meanings in context. Phrasal verbs play an important role in the English language. There is no getting away from them. Every time natives speak they use them. Take a look at the ones below. Did you know that the following two sentences have different meanings? Peter hung up after a few minutes = he ended the telephone call. Peter hung up on me after a few minutes = he ended the call by interrupting the conversation abruptly, angrily and rudely. Now look at these two examples: Pretty flabbergasting! I've gone off cheese = I no longer like cheese. The cheese has gone off = the cheese is not fresh anymore. It is not good to eat. If you eat it you could become sick. The alarm clock has just gone off = Can you turn it off please? I want to sleep for another few minutes. Does this mean that the alarm clock is not fresh anymore? NOOOO!!!!! Does it mean the alarm clock doesn't like someone or something anymore? NOOO!!! Well what does it mean you may be asking yourself. You should be able to understand from the context. Out of context 'to go off' is devoid of any meaning whatsoever. In the case of the alarm clock, it means, it didn't ring. Another example is: He turned on me = he either attacked me physically or verbally. He turned me on = he caused me to become excited. Now can you see why the wrong use can lead to numerous misunderstandings? Phrasal verbs can be separable, that is, as seen in the example 'he turned me on', and inseparable as in the example 'he turned on me'. There are also phrasal verbs which are both separable and inseparable Example: She took off her jacket/she took her jacket off = she removed her jacket. In this book you will learn and become familiar with each phrasal verb type. Good clear examples are set out to illustrate the meanings. ABOUT THE AUTHOR The author has been a teacher of English as a foreign language for over 18 years. Born in the North East of Scotland, she has spent most of her adult life abroad, teaching students of various nationalities how to speak English effectively.

From Simple Verbs To Periphrastic Expressions

English offers verbal expressions in two basic forms: simple verbs such as walk and look, and periphrastic expressions such as have/take a walk and have/take a look. Which do we use, why, and how do particular usages arise or disappear? This volume explores the historical development of two important periphrastic verbal constructions, composite predicates and phrasal verbs, as well as related expressions, from the viewpoint of English historical linguistics. The approach is descriptive and interpretive, encompassing rich and varied data from Old English, Middle English, Early Modern English, Late Modern English, and Present Day English, from sources such as the Chadwyck-Healey electronic corpus databases. The history of English is characterized by the development from synthetic to analytic. The role of this tendency in the development of verbal expressions is of particular interest.
