    Re: Meaning of a sentence!

    To get up with someone means to contact them, to be in communication.

    I got up with Mary after you left and told her all about you.

    To go up with someone usually means to accompany them.

    Can I go up with you to the mall?

    In these cases, the word [I]up[I] is not functioning as a preposition, but as a particle whose placement in the sentence is more or less superfluous.

    Other examples are: Meet up, and start up
