В английском языке не только пишется "Ливерпуль", а читается "Манчестер". Еще если после глагола идет предлог, то глагол может означать совсем другое. Это называется фразовый глагол. Поэтому если в непосредственной близости от глагола стоит предлог, обязательно проверьте, не является ли это сочетание фразовым глаголом. Например, look after (my) mom - означает не "смотреть за (своей) мамой", а ухаживать за ней, "look up the word" - не смотреть вверх на слово, а посмотреть его значение в словаре.
