    Phrasal verbs -Take


    A phrasal verb is a verb with more than one word. It is made of a main verb plus a preposition or a particle.The meaning of a phrasal verb is different from the meaning of the main verb, and it depends on the second or/and third part of phrasal verb i.e. preposition or particle that comes after the main verb. There are more than 10,000 phrasal verbs in English .

    Phrasal verbs are often used in speaking or in informal writing. There are four types of phrasal verbs.

    1 – Transitive: This type of phrasal verb needs an object to complete the sentence. Example: Mary looks after the students.

    2 – Intransitive: This type of phrasal verb doesn't need an object. Example: The soldier ran away from the field.

    3 – Separable: This type of phrasal verb can be separated in the sentence. Example: She picked up her child from school yesterday. She picked her child up from school yesterday.

    4 – Inseparable: This type of phrasal verb cannot be separated and the parts must remain together. Example: The president of an African country passed away last year.


    Take (Phrasal verb)

     We use take in a lot of phrases. The meanings are: hold something with one's hands, and remove (someone or something) from a specific place. Also take can mean “remove without permission”.

    We don't use take when we talk about having a meal or a drinkHave is more often used in that case : have breakfast/lunch,etc.


    Exercise: choose the right options.
