The word "get"
I am learning about word "get". Other than online dictionary, is there any websites explaining the use of the word "get"? Can we learn how to use it without memorizing all of the meaning of "get"? May be there's a pattern how to use it.
Read about in a grammar book, to learn the most important structures (for example: I got my hair cut).
Then just use a dictionary, and look at the most common ways to use it, and read the examples. Then whenever you come across "get", try to understand what it means and why it was used that way, using your dictionary.
Don't learn anything by heart if it's not necessary. If you don't use what you learn, you'll forget it.
<<Read about *it* in...>> Ooops!
I'm not positive, but I wouldn't doubt if many grammar books avoid "get" in any context other than receiving something. "I got my hair cut" may be rendered "I had my hair cut."
If 'get' has 50 meanings or whatever, just treat it as 50 different words, and learn each one separately when you come across it.
GET has universal meaning, you can put it instead of any English verb. Very useful when you can not pick up a proper word for the situation.
