GET 3 (RECYCLED): meaning and examples

Good morning. Today we are continuing with the get theme. This time we will look at a very common informal use of get that means to understand someone or something. Consider the following examples. Example 1: Everyone laughed at the joke, but Olga didn't seem to get it. In other words, Olga didn't understand the joke, so she didn't laugh. Example 2: Speaker 1 enters the room where Speaker 2 is watching a film. Speaker 1: I don't get it. What's happening? Speaker 2: She has decided to stay with her ex-husband. Speaker 1: Oh...I get it now. If you have any questions about this very common use of get, please post them in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website.
