: After stumbling around with this language for about 66 years I stumble across the phrase "phrasal verbs" and discover that they are apparently, well, ah, er -- perhaps phrasal verbs. But what is the point in having couple of dozen websites devoted to "phrasal verbs"?

Possibly because phrasal verbs are particularly difficult for people learning English as a second (third, fourth, nth) language.
