self-learning intended for post-intermediate and advanced learners of
English. It contains some 1,100 phrasal compounds used with 17
particles/prepositions which combine with some 500 different verbs,
nouns and adjectives. Numerous glosses allow the teacher to use it in
very heterogeneous classes.

Thanks to cognitive linguistics the material is organized around each
particle giving the students an astonishing insight into the networks
of metaphorical meanings of each particle. Furthermore, the book
implements the most important findings and techniques in the field of
learning a foreign language. This textbook will be a valuable
companion for teachers and students.

Brygida Rudzka-Ostyn was Professor at the University of Leuven,
