“TAKE OFF” can be TRANSITIVE or INTRANSITIVE depending on the meaning.

AS WE WERE TALKING ABOUT PHRASAL VERBS IN THE FORMER POST, WHAT´S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PUT OFF AND CALL OFF?

I THINK THIS IS A MEMORABLE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN THE SUBTLE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO PHRASAL VERBS BY HEART

If you call something off you cancel it

ARE THEY SEPARABLE OR INSEPARABLE PHRASAL VERBS?

HOW DO YOU KNOW? HOW CAN YOU FIND OUT?
