19. PHRASAL VERBS
19. Different meanings of adverbs particles
Study:
1 We use adverb particles like back away to make a verb “stronger”:
Instead of: Drink your milk
We can say: Drink up your milk. Up strengthens the meaning of drink
2 Note how these adverb particles strengthen the verbs
Away (disappear)       put away your books
Away       cut away the branch
Back         pay back the money

Write: use particles after these verbs to make your own sentences
1 (put): after the lesson we put away our books
