I.get <part prés getting, prét got, part passé got, gotten Am > [ɡet] VERB trans This much-used verb has no multi-purpose equivalent in French and therefore is very often translated by choosing a synonym: to get lunch = to prepare lunch = préparer le déjeuner.
get is used in many idiomatic expressions ( to get something off one's chest etc.) and translations will be found in the appropriate entry ( chest etc.). This is also true of offensive comments ( get stuffed etc.) where the appropriate entry would be stuff.
Remember that when get is used to express the idea that a job is done not by you but by somebody else ( to get a room painted etc.) faire is used in French followed by an infinitive ( faire repeindre une pièce etc.).
When get has the meaning of become and is followed by an adjective ( to get rich/drunk etc.) devenir is sometimes useful but check the appropriate entry ( rich, drunk etc.) as a single verb often suffices ( s'enrichir, s'enivrer etc.).
For examples and further uses of get see the entry below.
