Title: Word Power: Phrasal Verbs and Compounds
Subtitle: A Cognitive Approach
Written By: Brygida Rudzka-Ostyn
Edited By: Paul Ostyn
Series Title: Mouton Textbook
Description:

WORD POWER: PHRASAL VERBS AND COMPOUNDS is a textbook for guided 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, Belgium.
Paul Ostyn is Professor Emeritus at the University of Namur, Belgium.
