    I've got rid of my cold.
  2. going on

Usage notes[edit]

In compound verbs it is generally vain to distinguish those in which los is the adjective los(e) from those in which it is the adverb. For example, in losmachen ‎(loosen) it seems to be the adjective, in losfahren ‎(leave) and loswerden ‎(get rid) it is the adverb.
