Play with phrasal verbs

Some phrasal verbs are NON-separable verbs!
the preposition MUST follow the main verb.
For example: I called on Brad. Not: I called Brad on. HOWEVER, many phrasal verbs are separable
the preposition may or may not follow the main verb.
For example:
I brought the children up
- OR -
I brought up the children. What Are They? Phrasal verbs are idomatic expressions that combine verbs and prepositions (or adverbs) to create new verbs whose meaning has changed. Work + out = exercise
Look + like = resemble Verb + preposition = meaning What Else?
