    Re: phrasal verbs and verbal phrase

    Not reaally- a verb phrase is a group of words around a verb, including auxiliaries, complements, adverbs, etc. A phrasal verb is a verb plus prepositions/particles that change the meaning of the ariginal verb (like give up). A phrasal verb is really a subset.
