Verb "dare"

Jemma September 10, 2016, 10:38 am

Cosa significa "dare" in inglese?
per esempio, vorrei dare un'occhiata ad un libro su quello scaffale.

Secondo il dizionario, la significa di "dare" in inglese é "to give", sono confondo perché la frase in inglese é "I would like to take a look at a book on that shelf."

Aiuto, per favore!

Hi Rachelyeo,

Ways of saying and collocations can rarely be literally translated between English and Italian. Dare un'occhiata is a common collocation ("to give a glance at"), as is to take a look, and therefore they must be seen as a "whole". A literal translation would sound really strange here.

Hope this helps!
