There is much confusion concerning the prepositional verb as a separate category main verb in Afrikaans. Some linguists are of the opinion that the prepositional verb is not a separate category main verb, but rather a subcategory transitive or intransitive verb. There is a definite need for parameters within which the prepositional verb should feature. The unique characteristics of the prepositional verb necessitate the need for it to be classified as a separate category, and the need that the relation between the prepositional verb and the particle be highlighted.
