A phrasal verb is a combination of a verb and a preposition which is used as an idiom. For today’s English lesson, let’s look at the phrasal verb, call off.
- Meaning: Call off means to cancel.
- Usage: When you call off an event like a meeting, a party, and so on, you decide not to have that event.
- We had to call off the barbecue because of the weather.
- Jane called off the party when she caught a cold.
- If the CEO doesn’t make it to the office in time, we may have to call off today’s meeting.
