Phrasal verb is the name given to an English verb which is composed of two or three words. The original verb is combined with one or more particles (typically a preposition or an adverb) to change its meaning. Some text books call these by other names, such as multi-word verbs or multi-part verbs. Well, to my ears something similar exists in Spanish! Help me to list examples here.
