To go after is the phrasal verb we will look at today. It is an inseparable phrasal verb and it means to follow or pursue.

You can go after someone or something. Let’s see some examples:

My brother went after the thief who stole his wallet.

The principal goes after students who try to leave campus at lunch.

Those are examples of going after someone. When we go after something we usually mean to pursue a goal.

Take care,
