To the StudentThe CorpusLAB series of books are based on computer-aided analysis of spoken and written
 
American English. By studying the exercises in this book, you will be learning the most
 
frequent phrasal verbs and associated phrases (collocations) in Business English and you will
 
be working with the spoken and written sentences you are likely to encounter in business
 
situations.All the phrasal verbs in this book are very frequent in English.Meaning. We give several common meanings for each phrasal verb. These meanings are often
 
extensions from the core meaning and they may be abstract. You should study the sentences
 
carefully to see how each phrasal verb is used.Collocations. Each meaning of a phrasal verb is usually associated with a set of particular
 
words (collocates) within the sentence. For example,
complaints 
is a frequent collocate of
 
deal with,
as in the sentence
we had to deal with a lot of complaints.
When you work through
 
the units in
Business Phrasal Verbs,
you will not only learn common phrasal verbs, you will
 
also learn longer phrases such as
deal with complaints.
Idioms. Phrasal verbs are often used in idioms, such as the expression
look at the big picture.
 
We have included the more frequent idioms in this bookEach unit concentrates on one phrasal verb (e.g., go
out).
The phrasal verb is introduced in a
 
table format that (a) highlights the grammar of the phrasal verb, (b) defines its most common
 
meanings, and (c) provides examples of how the phrasal verb is used in business English. The
 
information in the table is brief, easy-to-follow, and can be consulted at any time for quick
 
reference.Each table is followed by a series of exercises intended to check your understanding of the
 
meaning and uses of the phrasal verb presented in the unit. The exercises generally progress
 
from controlled practice to more open-ended exercises. A wide variety of question types are
 
used; including, fill-in-the-blanks, multiple choice, sentence matching, and re-writing, as well
 
as pattern identification, error correction, and discussion.Following every four units, you will find a short set of comprehensive review exercises to
 
consolidate your learning of the phrasal verbs in the previous four chapters. There are also six
 
CorpusLAB units which provide more corpus data and provide opportunities for developing a
 
deeper understanding of the material through a technique called data-driven learning in which
 
you will analyze and classify phrasal verb usage.You will also find a key to all of the exercises at the end of the book, which you can use to
 
check your answers. The index contains a list of a list of the phrasal verbs and collocations
 
used in the book.
