Unfortunately, with phrasal verbs there can be more than one meaning. So this makes it even more difficult for someone learning English!
‘Break in’ is an example. There are THREE possibilities with this phrasal verb!
“Sorry, can I just ‘break in’ there”. In this context, ‘break in’ means, interrupt a conversation or discussion. As well as:
“We had a ‘break in’ yesterday”. Here it means, the person(s) had a burglary, to their house or other property. And then it also can mean:
“I need to ‘break in’ these shoes, I’ve got terrible blisters”. This means, soften with use. With new leather footwear, they have to be worn for a while to make them more comfortable, normally.
