    phrasal verb

    What is the difference between "cut out something" and "cut something out"? I read the examples in idiom part but I am still vague about how to use them. There are many phrasal verbs which have those same structures. Are there any rules to use them exactly?
    I checked my post and corrected it the way it should be. I have always tried to follow the rules, however, I tend to be forgetful at times. I will try to fix that.

    Re: phrasal verb

    No, there aren't any rules- learning whether a phrasal verb is separable or inseparable is a dictionary issue, I'm afraid.
