    Re: Phrasal Verb

    "In spite" is two words.

    I wouldn't call either one a phrasal verb. "In spite of" is not a verb. "Laugh at" has a normal meaning, not an idiomatic one.

    Re: Phrasal Verb

    Welcome to the forum, Atif Wahab.

    It is important to make it clear what your question is. Thread titles should include some/all of the words you are querying. A good title for this thread would have been "laugh at" or "in spite of".

    You could then write something like "Hello everyone. I would like to know if "in spite of" and "laugh at" are phrasal verbs. If they are, what do they mean?"
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
