I don't find either of them to be natural English.Good evening to everybody.
I have opened this new thread because I cannot understand these two verbs "get out" and "get over" with the particular meaning I'm going to use in the sentences below. I've been studying in details the use of the verb "get" with prepositions and I've come across in these two in sentences like,
A) Bill got over to Peoria
B) Bill got out to Peoria.
Now, the author of the book I've been reading says "Bill arrived in Peoria from the east or west" for the first, and "Bill arrived in Peoria from east or from a larget city". Now, I cannot get the meaning of "out" and "over" and why English people use them here in this case. Is there any particular logic in this use? How could you help me understand their uses. May it be an idiomatic use?
In sentences like "Bill got to Peoria", it's simple because we have the verb "get to" which in this case means "to arrive"; in "Bill got back to Peoria", "Bill got up to Peoria", "Bill got down to Peoria", the sense is quite clear because I can catch the movement Bill did, but in the two with "out" and "over" which movement would he do?
I hope you can help me with these and maybe give me more examples about this, according to me, weird use of "get out" and "get over".
Thank you very much in advance.
