    Re: meaning of verb + endings

    It is not possible to summarise the combinations.

    For example, "after" in "to look after" (i.e. "to care for") does not have the same meaning as "after" in "to gaze after".

    You might find it more useful to buy a dictionary of phrasal verbs and study the individual entries.

    Best wishes,
