Re: Help me!!! essay due tom. wanna go to sleep soon!!
I don't agree that 'fall in love' is a phrasal verb. A phrasal verb is generally considered to be a verb followed by a one or more particles (preposition/adverb) with a meaning different from what you would expect from the individual words used together.
'in love' is a preposition+noun expression denoting an emotional state.
One of the meanings of 'fall' is 'become' - you can fall ill, asleep, pregnant, etc.
ps. 'asleep' itself was originally 'on sleep'
