What is the meaning of "turn to", "work" and "taken from" in the following sentence?
-I now turn to Freud, from whose work the following quotation is taken. -
Thanks in advance.
turn to -> turn my (and your) attention to
work -> book/books/paper - depending on context
taken from -> it's a quotation
PS There are other, irrelevant, meanings for those words. For example 'Whenever I need an argument based on childhood and sex, I turn to Freud.' This sort of 'turn to' means something like 'treat as a dependable source'. A dictionary will sort this out. (Please Note: this site is not a dictionary.
