Phrasal Verbs

Phrasal verbs include a verb + a preposition or adverb that changes the original meaning of the verb. For example, a lot of phrasal verbs use the preposition “out.” Examples include break out (get away from), hand out (give to people), and, of course, make out (kiss a lot).

Some phrasal verbs are non-separable, meaning the preposition must directly follow the verb. For instance, you can say "I dropped by the bar," but not "I dropped the bar by" because drop by is non-separable.

On the other hand, drop off is separable. You can say, "I have to drop off my son at school," or, "I have to drop my son off at school."
