-to anticipate e anticipare-

Nota d'uso
I verbi “anticipare” e to anticipate non vengono usati allo stesso modo in italiano e in inglese. Infatti, to anticipate viene utilizzato soltanto in alcuni contesti. “Anticipare” nel senso di “fare qc. prima del previsto” può essere tradotto con to bring (o move) forward: Can we move the lesson forward to one?, possiamo anticipare la lezione all'una?; oppure con to have (o do) st. earlier: Can we have the lesson earlier?, possiamo anticipare la lezione? “Anticipare” nel senso di “far sapere in anticipo” si può tradurre con to let sb. know: The teacher let us know that he won't be here on Tuesday, l'insegnante ci ha anticipato che non ci sarà martedì.
