Multi-word verbs are verbs that combine with one or two particles (a preposition and/or an adverb), for example:
The letters BBC stand for British Broadcasting Corporation.
(verb + preposition)
This milk tastes awful. 1 think it’s gone off (verb + adverb)
She couldn't attend the meeting so Helen stood in for her.
(verb + adverb + preposition)
If the addition of the particle(s) changes the meaning of the verb in some way, it is usually called a phrasal verb, because it has an idiomatic meaning - the phrase means something different from its component parts.
