Phrasal Verbs + Gerunds
Gerunds are used with phrasal verbs that end in prepositions. Phrasal verbs are verb phrases which are made up of two or more words, generally the verb plus one or two prepositions. Not all phrasal verbs combine with other verbs. Here are some of the most common phrasal verbs that do combine with other verbs in the gerund form:
The coach called off practicing for the day.
Tom looked into finding a new job.
She took a long time to get over losing her dog.
