This list of multi-word verbs (S-Z) includes the different types of multi-word verbs (MWVs) out there, such as phrasal verbs (verbs + adverbs), prepositional verbs (verbs + prepositions) and semi-auxiliaries. It is intended as a reference for teachers, not as a mere list to be presented as-is to students. Don't forget to point out that, like so many other verbs, many MWVs can have more than one meaning.

Those MWVs that have many forms will have their own dedicated page ("See main article"), while those with just two or three will have the forms included on this page.
