This is the first visit.
I'd like to know two-word verb.
1) look at
2) turn off
I learned that 'at' in the first sentence is a preposition and 'off' in the second is a 'asverb'.
How can I tell a preposition from a adverb?
Best regards. :D
'I looked at my watch.'
'I turned off the TV.'
No rule is foolproof, but two ways are:
(1) Insert an adverb:
'I looked carefully at my watch.'
X 'I turned carefully off the TV.'
(2) Isolate the particle:
'What did you look at?'
'At my watch.'
'What did you turn off?'
X 'Off the TV.'
