    Correct grammer?

    Hello,

    I have a question about if a sentence is correct grammar in English... I have seen this sentence written in a book but it seems to me incorrect:

    "give me a look at that, will you?"

    Is this correct grammar? I would have written "Could you give me a look at that, please?" Is there some differences in meaning???

    Thank you very much for your time!

    They express the same meaning. The first one is casual. You'd say it to a friend or to someone you know well. The second one is a form of politeness. Both are acceptable.

    "Give me a look at that, will you?"
    "Could you give me a look at that, please?"


    Does that help?
