Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate the ability of Iraqi university students to recognize and produce English phrasal verbs and their synonymous simple lexical verbs from a syntactic and semantic point of view. It is hypothesized those students find it difficult to recognize and produce phrasal verbs. The results show that the students seem to have insufficient skill or capacity to recognize phrasal verbs and consequently to produce meaningful sentences. The data was collected by testing 50 Year-4 students in an English department in an Iraqi university.
