What are Phrasal Verbs and why do we need them?

How do we know when to use 'give in' or 'give up'? What is the difference?

Shouldn't we simply use regular verbs?

In addition to regular verbs, the English language has 'phrasal verbs'. This is a group of verbs that consist of a verb + a preposition or an adverb or both. In many cases, given there are not enough verbs in the English language, the only way to express an action is by using a phrasal verb. For example: try on clothes (note: you don't 'measure' clothes) to see if they fit you.
