Getting a list of "composed" expressions / understanding them
Hi there !
I've been wondering for a while and so far I did not find anything. What I'm calling "composed" expressions (because I don't know if there is an actual name for them) is when a word is added at the end often of a verb it can be out/up/... for example :
Also when I asked a native guy (from Scotland) about this habit of adding a word to make an expression he wasn't able to tell me why they are added and he told me that's a kind of a slang, but even on very officials speeches and interviews they are using them. Also I noticed that their use depends also a lot on the English spoken, I noticed than the Americans are using even more these kind of expressions than the British. For the anecdote I was struck by that when I've been in touch with an American company by email following to my inquiry the guy replied by "thank you to reach out I think we can help you out..." while a British would not use it so much for this context.
So if you've a got a list and/or an explanation on this I would be glad to get it :)
Thank you !
