-assistere e to assist-

Nota d'uso
Il verbo italiano assistere nel senso di “essere presenti” non si traduce di norma con to assist (se non in contesti molto formali): Ho assistito alla cerimonia, I was at the ceremony (non I assisted at the ceremony). In questo significato vengono utilizzate espressioni come to be at, to be present at, to see. In contesti legali o per eventi di particolare importanza si può usare il verbo to witness: Ha assistito all'omicidio, she witnessed the murder. To assist corrisponde ad assistere nell'accezione di “aiutare”, “prestare assistenza”: Ho assistito mio padre in ospedale, I assisted my father in hospital.
