Could anyone misunderstand this:
"He gained access to the computer."
Does it mean he used the computer, or that he gained the right/permission to use the computer?
I was confused by definitions 2 and 3 in this dictionary:
( learnersdictionary.com/search/access )
and it gives examples for each definition:
2 "They tried to gain illegal access to the company's network"
3 "Investigators are trying to gain/get access to his financial records."
Same for 3.
Definition 3 about getting permission is an unlikely meaning if they are trying to gain illegal access.
