My friends! I have decided to post a series of blogs dedicated to the phrasal verbs. You see, most of the phrasal verbs are not idioms at all, they are just combinations of a verb and an appropriate preposition. Today I will tell you about the phrasal verbs with OFF and UP. First of all, you should realize what these prepositions mean.
OFF means that we separate/remove a part of some solid object or disconnect something like wires. For example:
She broke off a bit of a chocolate bar.
The worker cut off the old branches of the tree.
I was cut off talking to him (there was disconnection).
UP has two different uses:
1. The action is directed upwards.
I looked up at the ceiling.
She came up to the second floor.
2. The action is completed. We can't go on doing the same.
I was hungry and ate up everything on the plate.
She didn't want anyone to read the note and tore it up.
And now, I'd like to ask you to compose either your sentences or a very short stories using your phrasal verbs with OFF and UP. I hope, the idea and your task are clear.
Good luck! And have a great weekend!
