Hi, these my two questions, thanks for your help.
1. In American English, what does "properly" mean in this sentence? Does it
mean correctly, or really?
Clerk: Can I help you?
Man: Yes, I bought this briefcase last week, but there's something something with lock, I can't get it close properly.
Clerk: Let me see, yes, I see what you mean, the lock seems to be jammed or something, I'll give you another one, sorry about that?
2. Does "loved ones" mean ones who you love?
Have a nice day!
properly : the case won't close in the way that it should, in the way that it was meant to close when designed by the manufacturer.
the context's here,
Man: Can I ask you something? Why have you denied any familiy or loved ones to be there for you in the end?
Lincoln: Why would I let them watch me die?
Man: May be it's not about them watching you die.
Lincoln: May be it's about me watching them live. That the final torture?
