Could someone tell me how to determine if noun/pronoun should stand before adverb/preposition or after it when this noun/pronoun is used with phrasal verb?
Here are some examples - "give smth up" or "give up smth"; "check smth out" or "check out smth"; "fill smth in" or "fill in smth" etc.
Thanks, but I just wanted to know if there is any rule to distinguish separable phrasal verbs from inseparable ones.
Most lists and dictionaries will tell you, so it is a case of using that to know. It's not an area governed by rules.
