korien_oct10“My brother ate the pudding I was saving, but I’ll get him back. I have to think of a good prank to play on him.”

“You killed my father! I’ll get you for that!”

To “get” someone often means to do them some kind of harm, whether it’s actual violence or a good-natured joke. If you get someone back or get someone for something they did, it’s revenge for what they did. You can also “get back at” someone.



誰かを「get」することはよく、暴力から害のない悪戯まで、何か悪いことする意味で使います。「Back」や「for」がついているなら、その人がしたことに対しての仕返しです。「Get back at」という言い方もあります。
