    Default Need some example clauses (phrasal verbs)

    come about: when ship comes about, it changes direction
    come up: begin at universty
    run over: if a container runs over, there is so much liquid inside that some flows out.
    stick to: stick to the rules => to do sth exactly according to the rules.
    stick to your guns => to refuse to change your mind about sth even though other people are trying to persuade you that you are wrong.
    That's my story and I'm sticking to it. => used to say that you are not going to change any part of what you have already said.
    come to: come to yourself. => to gain control of your emotions again.
    bring up: bring somebody up on a change of theft/treason etc. => to charge someone with a particular crime.
    do away with: to kill someone
    look out for: look out for yourself/for number one => to think only about what will bring you an advantage, and not think about other people.

    i need example clauses with this means. But i couldn't. Can you help me?

    Best Regards,
    Oğuzhan Aktaş.
