To break up is a common phrasal verb which means: ‘to separate’. You can use it to describe the end of a relationship, romantic or otherwise. For example, my boyfriend broke up with me last week and I am over the moon because all that commitment was totally getting on my nerves. Unfortunately, The Beatles broke up in 1970. Or, you can use it to describe the action of breaking an object into different parts. For example, unscrupulous multinationals take over smaller companies in order to break them up and get rid of the competition.
Imagine you live next to a group of young fun-loving neighbours. You get on really well with them but their late night partying and obsession with rap music is disturbing your sleep and consequently your work performance. You are afraid of being fired. What would you do?
If you watch the Star Wars films, without a shadow of a doubt, you will learn a lot about life, power, greed and the delicious seduction of the dark side, (seriously, who doesn´t want to be Darth Vader?!)
On the other hand, if you copy Yoda´s speech patterns, and his use of grammar and word order, you are definitely going to confuse the hell out of native English speakers. So Yoda, please, get back to basics and have a look at how to ask a question.
