Phrasal verbs ("verbi sintagmatici") are not stative, but dynamic: they usually begin in casual speech where they become part of our everyday vocabulary and eventually become recognized as standard usage.
A phrasal verb is a verb plus a preposition or adverb which produces a meaning indipendent of the separate elements, different from the original verb, consequently it can’t be derived from the dictionary meaning of their parts.
Many phrasal verbs have more than one idiomatic meaning. The difficulty is two-fold, the unpredictability of their idiomatic meaning and the rules describing how they may be entered into the rest of the sentence.
