Subject: summary: verb-particles

Many thanks to all of you who responded to my request for references on
phrasal verbs/particles. I haven't had time to track down the details of
some of the leads I got, but I have most of them, and since I'll soon be
leaving town for much of the summer, had best post what I have. I'll
find the rest when I get back. Here it is, and thanks again.
