    Get and particles

    'They just don't get it' - meaning, 'they just don't understand'.  This has been a complaint frequently seen in the British press during the last few months aimed at both the bankers and the politicians.  'Get' is a useful little verb which can take on a wide variety of meanings when linked with other little words.  Some of these are explored in this test.
