    Red face Some phrasal verbs

    I would like to know if my use of phrasal verbs in these sentences is right and if someone might correct all my mistakes:
    My cousin Thomas has invited me to his wedding. I must get back to him this afternoon without delay!
    After a few months of peace, feelings of violence started coming up.
    You think Im playing at something. But Im not, actually.
    It is imperative to calm those crowds down.
    Well, thank you.
    Best regards.

    Re: Some phrasal verbs

    Mostly OK, although 'welling up' would be much more natural than 'coming up' in #2.
