Meaning and use of "kriegen"?
When I read German texts on the internet or in magazines and books I often see the word "kriegen" but haven't been able to really grasp how to translate or use it, and as of yet it hasn't come up in Duolingo's German course (I'm not quite through it, but almost). Could anyone help me with an explanation?
kriegen isn't in the German tree, but two or three synonyms are: beziehen, bekommen, erhalten.
It means 'get'. And like 'get' the definition is quite length, that is, it's used in a lot of different ways.
