Assunto:  Re: to crease x to wrinkle x to crumple
 
Mensagem:  Mario, I can't think of a case in which you must add a preposition to these verbs. I crumple a piece of paper = I crumple up a piece of paper. The car crumpled under the weight of the boulder. = The car crumpled up under the weight of the boulder. You wrinkled your skirt. = You wrinkled up your skirt. Mario, can you think of an example in which the addition of a preposition changes the meaning of one of these verbs?
