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.

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.
