TitleDon’t Give up, Look it up! Defining Phrasal Verbs for the Learner of English
AbstractPhrasal verbs have long been recognised as one of the most challenging areas of the English language for the learner of English. Even the most fluent speaker can be identified as a non-native speaker through their use of phrasal verbs. With reference to the Cambridge International Corpus of English and the Cambridge Corpus of Learner English this paper will illustrate the importance and difficulties, both real and perceived, of phrasal verbs for the learner of English. It will then examine ways in which, in the light of this information, the lexicographer can create effective frameworks upon which to build appropriate and supportive entries for phrasal verbs.
