    given

    Hi.
    I see "given" in many books and context and I don't know what meaning exactly.
    I don't mean past participle of give

    Re: given

    Again, please provide some context.

    Look up given (noun and adjective) in one of the dictionaries here.

    Re: given

    You haven't provided a sentence with "given" in it, so I don't know what meaning of "given" you are talking about.
