Phrasal Verbs with “put”


Remember that phrasal verbs are verbs that contain two or more words such as “get in” or “fill up.” The first word is usually a verb (i.e., “get” or “fill” in the last examples) and the 2nd word is usually a preposition (i.e., “in” or “up” in the last examples). This 2nd word is also called a “particle.”
