Re: phrasal verbs exercise 1

Post by zurin on Mon Oct 18, 2010 11:49 am

Great, lot's of phrasal verb examples. I'd like to explain phrasal verbs in Bahasa Malaysia.

Apabila perkataan dari kelas verb disambungkan dengan perkataan dari kelas preposition atau adverb, maka ia dipanggil phrasal verb; lihat berikut:

verb + preposition = phrasal verb
Contoh perkataan: go + on = go on
Contoh ayat: Go on to the next question. (Lihat soalan seterusnya.)

verb + adverb = phrasal verb
Contoh perkataan: give + up = give up
Contoh ayat: Please don't give up. (Harap jangan putus asa.)

Phrasal verb sering mengubah maksud verb yang digunakan. Dalam contoh di atas, maksud asal go adalah pergi tetapi maksud go on adalah lihat atau pergi ke. Begitu juga maksud asal give adalah beri tetapi maksud give up dalam contoh di atas adalah putus asa.

Sebaiknya jangan cuba belajar phrasal verb dengan menyambung perkataan-perkatan dari kelas verb, preposition dan adverb kerana cara ini amat mengelirukan. Cara terbaik untuk mempelajarinya adalah dengan menghafal phrasal verb sebagaimana kita menghafal perbendaharaan kata (vocabulary) seperti contoh-contoh berikut:

blow up - meletupkan
fill out - mengisi
hand in - menyerahkan
use up - menghabiskan
turn on - memasang
take off - berlepas

ADD SPICES TO YOUR PARAGRAPH BY PUTTING IN SOME IDIOMS: (part ii)

Post by isadora on Mon Oct 18, 2010 1:31 pm

ADD SPICES TO YOUR ESSAY BY PUTTING IN SOME IDIOMS:

Dear my beloved students;

IDIOMATIC EXPRESSIONS:
1. To face the music (To take the punishment or scolding)
2. To live from hand to mouth (To live in hardship)
3. To sit on the fence (To take no sides in a debate or a quarrel)
4. To be in the same boat (To be in the same circumstances)
5. In hot water (In trouble)
6. Have green fingers (Good at gardening)
7. Burn the midnight oil (Study until late at night)
8. Once in a blue moon (Seldom)
9. At the eleventh hour (At the last minute)
10. Bear in mind (Remember)

DRILL 1: By using all of the 10 list of idioms above, try to come out with a short paragraph of a story. Be as creative as possible.
Here is a simple short paragraph as an example for you:

Zayyid and Ziyyad were twin brothers. They came from poor family. Since their father had passed away, so they had to live with their step father. Their step father had odd jobs and all of them lived from hand to mouth for a livelihood. Zayyidi was their best friend and also was in same the boat. For Zayyidi, since his father worked as a lorry driver, he saw his father once in a blue moon only. Therefore, he joined the both twins to search job for their petty cash during evening time. Zaiyyidi, Zayyid and Ziyyad had geen fingers, hence, all of them spent their spare time after school doing some part time gardening around the nearby mansion area. However, his step mother was a fierce lady, if he were late to return home, he must be in a hot water. All of them were aware that knowledge was important, so they sometimes had to burn the midnight oil due to studying at the eleventh hour. They always bear in mind, that every difficulty ,would be an ease.

DRILL 2: Repeat the same for another 10 idioms, etc. until you get familiarize yourself with the idioms.
IMPLEMENTATION: Right away , use of not more than 4 idioms and not more than 4 phrasal verbs in your single essay.

Thank you!!
Regards,
Feel free to enquire me:
