So, this one is an easy one! Seriously! This verb only has two uses as a phrasal verb, one is informal and one is more formal.
This is the most common use:
- This book belongs to me. (This is my book/This book is mine)
- This house belongs to me. (This is my house/This house is mine)
- That pen belongs to Kevin. (That is Kevin’s pen/That pen is Kevin’s)
- Those shoes belong to her. (Those are her shoes/Those shoes belong to her)
- That cat belongs to us. (That is our cat/That cat is ours)
This next use is pretty formal and is usually seen in writing.
- I belong to the ABC gym. (When speaking, we would say, I go to ABC gym)
- Kaitlyn belongs to the to soccer team. (When speaking, we would say, Kaitlyn is on the soccer team)
- Artie belongs to the Boy Scouts. (When speaking, we would say Artie is a Boy Scout)
