    With a separable phrasal verb like "turn off", the two words that make up the verb can be separated:
    Turn the TV off; Turn off the TV; Turn it off.

    With inseparable verbs, the words have to stay together:
    Get off the chair.
    You can't say "Get the chair off" or "Get it off".

    That's pretty much the difference.
