There are four basic types of phrasal verbs.
- and inseparable
To bring up falls into two categories and can be used thusly:
- I brought up my dog.
- I brought it up.
- I brought the dog up.
Please notice the position of the pronoun it standing for the dog. If you use the pronoun, it cannot go at the end.
bring up means to raise (a child, chickens, a dog)
and also means: to raise a subject. He brought history up during our conversation.
Its categories are that it is a transitive, separable phrasal verb with three meanings.
Third meaning: He brought up the clothes from the dryer in the basement. [to move something to a higher level]
You can say: It was me that [did whatever] or It was I that [did whatever].
- I brought him up [child] in the elevator.
