    Post I will you my power.

    Is it correct to say 'I will you my power'?
    I think it should be 'I will give you my power'.

    I heard the sentence 'I will you my power' in a move.

    Wouldn't you take it wrong? It may be "I will use my power".

    Re: I will you my power.

    NOT a teacher.



    Verb
    1. decree or ordain; "God wills our existence"
    (hypernym) ordain
    2. have in mind; "I will take the exam tomorrow"
    (synonym) wish
    (hyponym) intend, mean, think
    3. determine by choice; "This action was willed and intended"
    (hypernym) decide, make up one's mind, determine
    4. leave or give by will after one's death; "My aunt bequeathed me all her jewelry"; "My grandfather left me his entire estate"
    (synonym) bequeath, leave
    (hypernym) give, gift, present
    (hyponym) devise
    (verb-group) leave, leave behind
    (derivation) testament


    Considering the forth definition maybe you can say the sentence is correct?
