    Re: List of Verbs + Preposition

    You need a list of phrasal verbs. They look like verbs + prepositions, but they are verbs + particles. They can't be separated, so "keen on" is the whole verb phrase keen on + sports not keen + on sports.

    Type in "phrasal verb list" on google and you'll get several pages.

    Here's a list And here's another You can find literally hundreds or thousands of lists of phrasal verbs on google. When you are searching, add words like list and/or esl to help your search be more specific.

    No, I don't need a phrasal verb list. Maybe I didn't explain. For example, the verb "interest" is followed by "in". The verd "experiment" is followed by "on". They are not phrasal verbs. They have just been a verbs with an especific preposition. And this is the list I need.

    In your examples 'keen' and 'interested' are adjectives, not verbs.
