Date: Tue, 4 Apr 1995 10:03:15 -0400 From: "Peter L. Patrick" Subject: prepositions/phrasal verbs Anton and Bruce, No need to be unAmerican. Mort Benson has put out at least one, and I think possibly several, Combinatory Dictionaries with a publishing co. called BBI, I think. I believe they're good old red-meat-and-jello American English-oriented (just to work in the now-obligatory food reference)... I suppose if he hadn't I could say "One needs put out". Does that sound acceptable to "needs+p.p." users? it doesn't to me, but then I'm not one... --peter patrick georgetown u.
