Meaning of Look Through and its uses
All Phrasal Verbs are idiomatic. Their meaning isn’t true in the dictionary. The Phrasal Verb “look through” is no different.
By saying “look through the junk drawer,” the speaker is telling the listener to search for something. This differs from “look through a telescope,” a Declarative that commands the listener to look at the stars.
And so, to “ Look through the junk and find a treasure map” commands that the listener search through the batteries, receipts, and other things that one stores in a junk drawer in hopes of finding a treasure map.
