Note:
This much-used verb has no multipurpose equivalent in Italian and therefore it is very often translated by choosing a synonym: to get lunch = to prepare lunch = preparare il pranzo. - Get is used in many different contexts and has many different meanings, the most important of which are the following: obtain or receive (I got it free = l'ho avuto gratis), move or travel (I got there in time = ci sono arrivato in tempo), have or own (she has got black hair and green eyes = ha i capelli neri e gli occhi verdi), become (I'm getting old = sto invecchiando), and understand (got the meaning? = capito?). - Get is also used in many idiomatic expressions (to get something off one's chest etc), whose translations will be found in the appropriate entry (chest etc). - When get + object + infinitive is used in English to mean to persuade somebody to do something, fare is used in Italian followed by an infinitive: she got me to clear the table = mi ha fatto sparecchiare la tavola. When get + object + past participle is used to express the idea that a job is done not by you but by somebody else, fare followed by an infinitive is also used in Italian: to get a room painted = fare verniciare una stanza. - When get has the meaning of become and is followed by an adjective (to get rich / drunk etc), diventare is sometimes useful but check the appropriate entry (rich, drunk etc) as a single verb often suffices (arricchirsi, ubriacarsi etc). - For examples and further uses of get see the entry below
