Phrasal verbs are two- and three-word verbs such as act up, come out, and sit around.
Phrasal verbs consist of a verb and another word or phrase, usually a preposition. The word that is joined with a verb in this construction is called a particle. Phrasal verbs can have multiple meanings, so it is wise to have a dictionary of phrasal verbs (Dictionary of Phrasal Verbs COBUILD by Rosamund Moon, Editor) or to have a dictionary that includes phrasal verbs as run-ons to the regular entries.
"Buy up" pode significar: "Comprar TODO" o estoque, terra, ações etc. que está a venda.
