Student or Learner
Is there a difference between one-word and phrasal verbs?
EX: To turn down and to refuse; She turned his invitation down. She refused his invitation.
Is either used more common in spoken or written English or in AmE or BrE or formal?
Also, the above question refers to transitive phrasal verbs.
Ex: She tore the letter up.
Ex: She tore up the letter.
Ex: She tore up all the letters he had sent her.
Ex: She tore all the letters up he had sent her.
Native speakers' (both AmE and BrE) help is greatly appreciated!
