    Re: phrasal verbs

    I'm afraid that this is an area where there aren't some clear rules that can be applied. There are some patterns, like three-word verbs generally bering inseparable, and certain prepositions like 'into' being the same, but really it's more a question of checking in a dictionary. If you click for full information on verbs in our list ( http://www.usingenglish.com/reference/phrasal-verbs/ ), it will give you this information along with the definitions and example.
