I am looking for an Intransitive phrasal verb's example sentence
in dictionaries though, I couldn't find it.
So, could you help me and teach me an example,
using " take over " (meaning: assume command)
as an Intransitive phrasal verb?

You seem to have the meanings correctly. What don't you understand?

In future, please start your own thread rather than using someone else's

Of course he didn't want an answer Anglika! Another phrasal verb comes to mind: to tout for business; I've crippled the URL in this post, and will get rid of his original. :-|
