    Ask Out
    Definition:
    To invite someone to come with you to a place such as the cinema or a
    restaurant.Especially as a way of starting a romantic relationship.

    Examples:
    I was thinking to ask her out when she glanced at me. "I was thinking about asking her" is standard. Perhaps your sentence is OK in Canadian.
    Baber asked me out to come to KFC for the celebration of his birthday. to KFC
    Having asked her out to a dinner, she refused.
    No. This is a dangling participial phrase. Who asked her out to dinner?
    I asked Sara out at restaurant to have dinner with me tonight. to the restaurant
    I am asking Ali out at to come to the airport to welcome my cousins.
    Luke's sister asked me out to join them at lunch tomorrow.

    Generally you simple "ask someone out".
    You can't ask someone out to join you.
    I would say it's used exclusively in a romantic relationship context. So asking someone to come to airport isn't an example.


    Please tell me that my examples are correct or not and if not them do correct 'em. Thanks :)
    You have English listed as your first language and you are not sure what asking someone out means?

    Re: Phrasal Verbs (Usage)

    Next Phrasal Verb.

    Back up
    To support or help some one

    Examples:
    Sharron has backed his brother up in going abbroad
    I back my little sister up in studies.
    Jannet will never back you up in this matter.
    Beck backed me up in learning SEO.
    They are asking to back them up in collecting charity for poor people.


    Did I use "back up" in correct sense? are all my sentences are correct?

    Examples:
    Sharron has backed her brother up in going abroad.
    Sharron is generally a girl's name. Sharron has backed up her brother....
    With a noun, it's probably best not to separate the verb.
    With a pronoun: She backed him up. NOT She backed up him.
    I back my little sister up in her studies. ditto.
    Jannet will never back you up in this matter. Yes, you is a pronoun.
    Beck backed me up in learning SEO. Yes.
    They are asking to back them up in collecting charity for poor people.
    They are asking us to back them up ... You've left out the object.

    It would be better for you to post each new question in a new thread. This thread looks like it's had a lot of responses, so teachers will generally assume you've been answered. Unless it's a follow-up question that's directly related to your original post, start a new thread.
    Also consider calling it something specific like "back up", not "phrasal verb". This way it's easier to tell if one has read it, and easier to search for later if necessary.
