What is the definition of 'two-word verb"? Would you name two-word verbs?

  • English Grammar -

    See http://www.class.uidaho.edu/Engl201/sentence_types/Two-word_verbs.htm

    It is a pair of words (one of which is often a verb and then other a preposition) which together represent a type of activity that could be represented by a different single word.

    Example: The marriage broke up.

    Here's a really good website that can help with these. They're referred to as "phrasal verbs" because they are made up of more than one word!

    If you click on the letter B and then scroll down, you'll find the one that DrWLS referred to above.
