    Post Found many mistakes in Phrasal Verbs

    Hello Sir/Mam,Warm Greetings,
    When I was going through the phrasal verbs,I found many mistakes over there.Which are
    Phrasal Verb: Dip into


    Meaning: Take money out of your savings
    Example: I've
    has to DIP INTO my savings account to pay for the works on my house

    Phrasal Verb: Come round


    Meaning: Change your opinion
    Example:
    Ate first she didn't like the idea, but she CAME ROUND to our way of thinking in the end.

    .................................................. .......
    Its such a very helpful site and I don't want anybodyelse to get wrong meanings of any of the word...My intention is not to make any baseless issue but to clear the reason.
    Thank You.
    Regards,
    Rachel.

    Welcome to Using English, Rachel.

    Which phrasal verb site are you referring to? It's not our own site here; we could edit that.

    Interestingly, I'd rather think 'many' is closer to 'numerous' than to 'two'. Well, to err is human, indeed.

    Thank you very much, Rachel- such typos can be hard to spot so when someone lets us know, it's great.
