    Re: Phrasal Verb Dictionary

    If a verb is inseparable, you cannot put a word like the object between the verb and the particle (preposition, etc). For example, you can come into money, meaning inherit. It is inseparable, so you cannot come money into. Some verbs have an option- you can turn off the light, or turn the light off. With these verbs that have the option, we separate when we use a pronoun and always say turn it off, not turn off it.

    Re: Phrasal Verb Dictionary

    Hello , IŽd like to know if there exists a phrasal verbs dictionary in which I "type" a phrase and instead of a definition I get a phrasal verb; for example I type "seek/search for" and I get "to look for".
    Not an online dictionary, but I mean a "physical" dictionary.
    Thank you very much.

    Welcome to the Forum, Laura

    If you want to type, you need an online dictionary. If you want a "physical" dictionary, I'm afraid there's seldom a chance you can type anything there.

    As far as I know, online dictionaries only let you type the main verb. Then you have to (usually) scroll down to find the phrasal verb you're looking for (I have not checked ALL dictionaries, to be sure, and I don't know if Longman has an online equivalent of their Longman Dictionary of Phrasal Verbs (or any other such book from any other editing house or university, for that matter).
    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
