There is no real date when the phrasal verbs began to be used. They were not common in the Old English era and their use was much rare. It use was very different.
For example the phrasal verb ''to burn'' was ''bærnan'' and the other phrasal verb ''to burn up'' was ''forbærnan''.
The prefix for- was used as well in ''forlorn'' which could made both ''understand'' and ''to stand underneath'' as well as ''to comprehend''. It was very confusing as one phrasal verb could mean more than one thing as seen in ''forlorn'' above. Other example was ''berædan'' that meant ''to dispossess'' while it's root verb ''rædan'' meant ''to advice''.
The phrasal verbs began to be used more effectively in modern England. It grew to be very popular because of its use by Shakespeare in his plays. From here on in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, it much more usable and less confounding than in the Old English era.
The four types of phrasal verbs are:
1. Intransitive - phrasal verbs that cannot or do not take objects. The prepositional functioning as a particle must directly follow the verb
2. Nonseparable transitive - phrasal verbs that require direct objects and may also take indirect objects. The preposition functioning as a particle must also directly follow the verb in nonseparable transitive phrasal verbs.
3. Optionally separable transitive - are phrasal verbs which also require objects, but the preposition functioning as a particle can follow either the verb or the direct object
4. Obligatorily separable transitive - phrasal verbs become obligatorily separable phrasal verbs when the direct object is in the form of a pronoun meaning the preposition functioning as a particle must follow the pronoun functioning as the direct object.
