As we know, we use phrasal verbs in which we put prepositions(and adverbs) after verbs that affect the meaning of the action mentioned in the sentence. For instance, taking the example of the verb run(used in past tense in the examples), we can have the following sentences:-
- John ran into his teacher at the theater.
- The inspector ran after the criminal.
- David ran away on seeing the ghost.
In all the above sentences the preposition affects the action being performed. However, I see no way to know what should be the preposition should be used after a particular verb.
So, is there any way to determine what preposition may be used with a particular verb?
Note: I am only concerned with the prepositions that come after verbs. So, I have not used phrasal verbs involving adverbs in the sentences.
