The english "read over" is a 'verbal phrase' that means something other than verb + the location over, so it's idiomatic. And idioms don't always translate word for word. 'Read over' means read quickly, not deeply, perhaps skimming.
Just because "we say that all the time in English" does not mean that Spanish has a word-for-word translation of the idiom.
Strange you should say that. I agree about it being an idiom and therefore not having a direct translation. However, to me it means the opposite of what you are saying. To me it means read thoroughly. Consider another two similar uses. 'Think over' and 'talk over'. When we 'talk/think over something before making a decision' we are doing it in depth. That is what read over, means to me.
That's interesting. Cambridge Dictionary suggests it means "to read something quickly from the beginning to the end, especially to find mistakes:". So I've been reading into the word quickly ;)
I agree with the meaning that 'over' supplies, though. It suggests 'repeatedly', hence perhaps more deeply.
What a dilemma!
Hermione said, eyes bursting with excitement. Ron rolled his eyes, "At this point I'd be surprised if you hadn't read about something. "Ron would you stop being such a dolt and just listen? Harry could use that to beat Malfoy and win the House Cup!" Harry perked up, but was as confused as ever. Could he really use this seemingly boring item to beat that smug prick?
Propositions are often metaphoric extensions of their literal meanings. Cerca is 'close' and cerca de is 'near to' and they are from the latin 'circa', meaning around. Same root as 'circle'.
Sobre is over, above, on, upon, atop (from the latin 'super', above).
They've both been extended to mean about. Neither translate "literally".
That's okay. I just wanted you to realise that read is an irregular verb in English. The past participle of read is read, which is pronounced as
/ɹɛd/ (RED [como el color rojo]).
This can make it a bit difficult to tell the difference when there is not much context to what you are reading. The main thing to note however is that there is no such word as readed.
