Can anyone explain me this sentence meaning? "The rest turn up dead or don't turn up at all." Because "turn up" has not one meaning.
It means to appear or to be found. They are either found dead or they are never seen again.
Thanks, because I started to learn phrasal verb and sometimes it confuses me -)
I know that "turn up" means "to increase volume or speed etc" "to find or to be found" "to appear/arrive unexpectedly" "to turn a card face upward" and I don't know how I could it say in English, but "turn up" means in stance "to turn up your sleeve"
Is it correct? =)
