Oh negócio estranho de aprender!
Muitas vezes nos deparamos com locuçíµes verbais em formas um pouco diferentes do comum, como no caso de Ã¢â?¬Å?get inÃ¢â?¬Â e Ã¢â?¬Å?sit downÃ¢â?¬Â, por exemplo. Esses tipos de locuçíµes ocorrem predominantemente nos casos de verbos de origem anglo-saxônica. Esses são casos de phrasal verbs, ou seja, verbos que são formados pela junção de um verbo com uma preposição ou um advérbio.
Ex: sit (verbo) + down (advérbio) = sit down (sentar)
get (verbo) + in (preposição) = get in (entrar)
Muitas vezes, o phrasal verb é facilmente identificado como nos casos apresentados anteriormente. Porém existem alguns casos que é relativamente complicado dizer o significado de um phrasal verb como Ã¢â?¬Å?hold upÃ¢â?¬Â (atrasar).
Na verdade, os phrasal verbs possuem um Ã¢â?¬Å?arÃ¢â?¬Â de informalidade, de gíria, porém se tornaram algo fundamental até mesmo no âmbito formal e principalmente na hora de praticar o inglês falado no dia-dia. Por isso, é necessário que o estudante tenha conhecimento de pelo menos os phrasal verbs essenciais:
