    wake up/ wake somebody up

    "We all know that a cup of coffee helps to wake you up in the morning."

    We have two separate definitions in dictionaries regarding the verb "wake":
    1) to stop sleeping; to make somebody stop sleeping
    2) to make somebody feel more lively. OR to become fully awake and energetic:
    Which one can match the sentence above?

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: wake up/ wake somebody up

    If you spill the coffee on a sleeping person, then definition #1 may apply.
