 Abstract:
 
 Eat up the apple or Eat the apple up? Is there any difference in the
 messages each of these alternative forms sends? If there isn't, why bother
 to keep both? On the other hand, is there any semantic similarity between
 eat the apple up and break the glass to pieces? This study takes a fresh
 look at a still controversial issue of phrasal verbs and their alternate
 word order applying sign-oriented theory and methodology. Unlike other
 analyses, it asserts that there is a semantic distinction between the two
 word order variants phrasal verbs may appear in. In order to test this
 distinction, the author analyzes a large corpus of data and also uses
 translation into a language having a clear morphological distinction
 between resultative/non-resultative forms (Russian). As follows from the
 analysis, English has morphological and syntactic tools to express
 resultative meaning, which allows suggesting a new lexico-grammatical
 category - resultativeness.
