    Default Phrasal Verbs

    I've come accross terminology such as two part and three part phrasal verbs. How do they differ from a normal phrasal verb?

    Any help appreciated.

    to look up (2 parts: verb plus particle 'up')

    She looked up his number in the phonebook.

    to catch up with (3 parts: verb plus particles 'up' and 'with')

    I try to catch up with my friends whenever I have the time.
