    I can't remember the word

    Hi everyone,
    I came across with a phrasal verb but I can't remember what it was. I still remember the meaning though: " to get back to a comment one previously mentioned in a discussion and talk more about it". or any definition close to this.
    I think the particle was "up".

    Can anyone help please?

    thanks in advance.

    No, the particle was short like up or off. But thanks anyway.

    Your 'getting back to' and waflob's 'going back (to) appear to me to be the most natural. If you are not going back too far, you can use 'Speaking/Talking of'. I can't think of anything with 'up'.

    So I guess I'll have to quit looking if it doesn't sound natural
