“I finished my homework. Can you look over it and check for mistakes?”

“Look over the plan for the project and tell me if you have any questions about it.”

Looking something over means to inspect or examine it, usually quickly. It’s almost the opposite of “overlook”, which means not to notice something (even though you looked).



何かを「look over」ということはそれに目を通すこと(軽く目だけで調べる)です。「Overlook」とは似ているけどほとんど反対の意味です。「Overlook」は見たのに何かに気付かない(見落とす)ことです。
