Фразовые глаголы.

Как известно, для английского языка характерно широкое использование так называемых фразовых глаголов, т.е. глаголов, смысл которых в значительной степени меняется от зависимости от того, с каким послелогами (наречиями, частицами или предлогами) они употребляются ( ср. get along with sb- ладить, уживаться с кем-либо, get around sb- добиться желаемого с помощью хитрости или лести) .Ядерное звено большинства фразовых глаголов составляют такие употребительные слова как get, come, run,hold и т.п. и такие распространенные послелоги как in, out, of, on и т.п. О значении фразовых глагол можно догадаться далеко не во всех случаях, т.к. зачастую они сильно отличаются от значений исходных глаголов ( ср. run- бежать; run out of sth- кончиться, если речь идет о деньгах, продуктах и пр.). Из-за того, что значения фразовых глаголов далеко не всегда очевидны, при обучении языку на них нужно обращать особое внимание.

Away –убежать, поспешно уйти

Down – сломать(ся)

To breakinto — а)внезапно начинать что-то; б)вломится
