what do you know about this subject? "get" is one of the most common words. English people are said to avoid it in formal writing.
Hi Gwendo Maybe you should buy.... "Practical English usage" by Michael Swan Oxford University Press
It's a great book which explains a great deal of those tricky things of the English language. Concerning "get", they say "it's sometimes avoided in a very formal style, but it is correct and natural in most kinds of speech and writing." ... and then there are 2 pages about its use.
... another idea is to keep learning more and more vocabulary, read a lot.... That's what I am trying to do.
Thanks for your helpful tibs. Get still fun out of learning and reading English!
... It's true ! actually I would like to use it more often, but, I'm not good enough to use phrasal verbs with this particule.
