    get a new angle on something

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    Later on he got a new angle on the matter.

    get a new angle on something = change one’s opinion

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V

    Not necessarily. It means he got some new information that gave him a different point of view or that he thought of a new way to look at the issue.

    The new information or way of thinking might or might not have changed his mind about the matter.
