Mensagem:  Are they phrasal verbs? Or are you thinking about adding a preposition after each of them?

Ps.: According to the encarta dictionary, a phrasal verb is: verb combined with another word: a verb followed by an adverb, a preposition, or both, used with an idiomatic meaning that is often quite different from the literal meaning of the individual words. Examples include “put up with” meaning “tolerate” and “stand for” meaning “represent.”
