    Use of get in sentence.

    Hi,
    Often we see that anyone is using the word "GET" in their conversation, But I am totally confused about the use of "Get". Sometimes this word is being used for bringing, sometimes for achievement, win, receive, gain, earn etc. Please let me know some sentence so that I can easily use it in my daily conversation.

    Re: Use of get in sentence.

    You're right -- get has many uses. What is your question?

    Just noticing these different uses is the first step towards using the word effectively yourself.

    Re: Use of get in sentence.

    Get over here!
    Get a job!
    Get your car fixed.
    Oooh, get you in your posh frock!
    That's an unflattering get-up.
    I'm getting to the top of my profession.
    This sentence is very confusing. I just don't get it.

    There are some example sentences for you. See if you can work out what they mean.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
