Phrasal Verbs with “put”

phrasal-verbs

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.”

Today, we will focus on phrasal verbs with “put”.

Put off – postpone, leave until a later time. 
Put up with – to tolerate. 
Put down – to insult.
Put on – to dress oneself.
Put back – to put something where it was previously.
Put in for- to make a formal request
