    get me the pen

    Suppose, my pen is by your left side and I am by your right side. So you are in middle. And if I want to tell you that "you please pick up the pen and give me", Can I say like this, "Please get me the pen".

    Please help me.

    I think you should say:Will you give me my pen?

    Re: get me the pen

    So, you mean, my sentence is incorrect.
    Is my sentence correct in any other context?

    Also, I think, your sentence "Will you give me my pen" sounds as if the pen is with the person to whom you are saying.

    Please help me.

    In that case you'd better say:Will you pass me my pen, please?

    Привет Свартник!
    Ты тоже мой приятель.
    I think there is nothing bad to know one more language especially today when Russian is becoming more and more popular. I would gladly learn all European languages and especially yours.

    And you are my friend? I am happy as Larry, Harry.
    I wish my Russian were not so rusty as it is. I need some brushing up. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

    Have a nice day.

    P.S: Is it you on your avatar? You remind me of one of my professors at the univ. He taught me quantum electrodynamics (QED)
