    strike; give forth or out; deal

    I have been studying some words and one of them is verb strike. In my Intermediate Dictionary its second meaning is introduced as "give forth or out; deal". I have made a search about the phrase "give forth or out" but there isn't enough information about what it is. So would you like to explain it? A related phrase is "strike a blow in self-defence"

    Thank you.

    Re: strike; give forth or out; deal

    I am not familiar with the definition you provide. Perhaps you can supply a sample sentence? (You can "strike a deal," but that is, I think, different.)

    I don't think much of your dictionary, hhtt21.

    The free online dictionaries here will be more helpful.
