One more question, and I just noticed this. I used the expression "spice up"
in two posts. I was thinking how I could've avoided being redundant. I
recalled various expressions involving verb + "up":
dizzy up (I have no idea what this one means)
piss up (as in "go piss up a rope/flagpole")
knock up (in England, "to awaken"; in America, "to impregnate"
That's most of 'em, I think. Of course there are other verb + preposition
(which now function as an adverbial POSTposition) groups, using such
directionals as "down", "around", "away", "through", "by", "under", "over"...
Anybody relate? Conlang examples?
