I would like to ask a suggestion of a link, in which must contain Preposition's meaning applied to Phrasal Verbs, for instance:

A verb followed by a preposition "Up" can means: complete, increase and move, like: finish up,turn on, stand up.

To be more exactly what I want, would be a list where I could search meaning of preposition, or a word, like: "I would like to know what are the phrasal verbs that I can use to speak: to arrive, to enter etc..

I'm used to see phrasal verbs when I search a word definition, for example: Get

Is here I can see all phrasal verbs with "Get"

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's a request for resources. It might be moved to Meta? – StoneyB on hiatus Nov 22 '15 at 19:25

    There's an online Dictionary of Phrasal Verbs which may be what you're looking for. Ordinary dictionaries will give you the more common meanings of prepositions, and a thesaurus will give you synonyms for words, including p-verbs. – StoneyB on hiatus Nov 22 '15 at 19:33
  • I was trying to find all meaning of preposition when applied with a verb, like "up" - increase, move, complete – TMoraes Nov 22 '15 at 19:43

    To the extent that it can be done, dictionaries will give you that - look at Collins, for instance. – StoneyB on hiatus Nov 22 '15 at 19:46
