In your SS One, you were introduced to phrasal verbs.  You were informed that a phrasal verb is formed when the root of a verb (infinitive) combines with a prepositional or adverbial particle.  You noted phrasal verbs with one particle such as the following:

go out come out  get back
 go income ingo on

We will now discuss phrasal verbs with more than one particle.

Study carefully the following sentences, taking note of the phrasal verbs and their single-word meanings.

1.     My town has done away with certain obsolete customs.  (abolished)

2.     The good boy always manages to get out of trouble.  (avoid)

3.     I will not be surprised if the man goes back on his promises.  (breaks)

4.     She looks down on her classmates because they always come to her for help.  (despises)

5.     The man’s sterling qualities make a lot of people look up to her.  (admire)

6.     Our friends may look in on us today.  (visit)

7.     The naughty boy gets up to all sorts of mischief.  (performs)

8.     Our teacher does not put up with such bad manners.  (tolerate)

9.     When it was his turn, he came out with a terrible story.  (told)

10.   We shall all come along with you to the place.  (accompany)
