    2. the particle
    3. phrasal verbs
    4. prepositional verbs
    5.phrasal prepositional verbs
    6. phrasal verbs vs. prepositional verbs
    7. multi-word verbs in passive
    8. multi-word verbs in context
    9. the idiomatic use of multi-word verbs
    10. the literal use of multi-word verbs
    11. idioms
    12. collocations
    13. stress.

    What exactly do you want us to do? You seem to have a well-planned start.

    first of all thank u for your paying attention to me and my topic. what i want you to do is to share me your points of view regarding my topic especially if you know that my thesis is a contrastive one between my mother tongue and english. do not you think that other subjects are to be referred to and i wonder whether there is nothing irrelevant. i want you to know that i have to write no less than 90 pages in my thesis.
    regards

    Re: two- word verbs

    What does Chapter 11 cover that hasn't been covered in the earlier chapters on idiomatic usage?

    hi all,
    regarding your question about chapter 11. actually it is not chapter 11; it is topic number 11 within chapter 1 and it is not used before as it seems to you since idioms is a different subject which has a relation with phrasal verbs. meanwhile, the idiomatic use of mwvs has something to do with meaning.

    Re: two- word verbs

    Other than phrasal verbs being idiomatic in meaning, I am sure that idioms themselves needs a section. Could you give me an idea of what you would include because I have a feeling the section might not be necessary.

    thank you for your answer. i think so also but my supervisor asks me to refer to idioms as well since they have a relation with phrasal verbs. by the way, what about other subjects? do you think that there is nothing wrong with my plan. i do kindly asking you to consult professional grammarians regarding writing a thesis research on multi-word verbs. what should i have to include for this purpose? waiting eagerly for your answer.
    regards,

    Re: two- word verbs

    If your supervisor says so, do it, but I am still not convinced that it is necessary. It is hard to givemuch further advice from just the titles, and vague ones. If you could give a brief outline of a section, it would be much easier to comment.

    dear tdol i am afraid that there is a kind of misunderstanding between me and you. to avoid such situations i will ask you to put yourself in my condition.what will you do when you are about to write an MA thesis research on multi-word verbs.
    thanks,
