To be honest, I don't see any reason why 'sapere' hadn't been used in this situation. It's definitely possible! Can anyone (especially, a native Italian speaker) tell us the difference between "Conoscerete la verità un giorno." and "Saprete la verità un giorno."? Is it, that by using 'conoscere' we want to say that we have more precise knowledge of something discussed here, by any chance?
Here I’m. In short, “conoscerai la verità un giorno” means that one day you will have an insight and you’ll understand the truth, instead “saprai la verità un giorno” means that you understand the truth by experience and learning.
“conoscere” and “sapere” are very similar verbs and, often, interchangeable, even in this phrase. The difference in meaning is often just a hint, but well defined, so much so that, sometimes, you only use one or the other verb. “conoscere” is more general and intuitive than “sapere” (generally, it’s a kind of knowledge that comes more from inside). Even “sapere” can be general, but using this verb means that what you know comes from a process of learning and memory (you want to emphasize that you get the knowledge from outside, by a specific cognitive process).
Maybe a no-native can understand this difference, by trying to associate with similar verbs respectively, like that: . “conoscere” looks like “to meet (someone)=conoscere (qualcuno)”, “to bring something to light=portare alla luce”, “to recognize=riconoscere”, “to experience=sperimentare” . “sapere” is like “to be able to/to know how to (something)=essere capace di/saper (fare qualcosa)”, "to be aware=essere a conoscenza”
Well, I hope this helps you. Bye =^_^=
First of all, I want to thank you a lot 'aliaskirara'! You're great, really! =))
Let me try and see if I understood your explanation correctly.
Can we say that “Conoscerai la verità un giorno” means that one day you will become mature and wise/smart enough to understand the truth (WITHOUT reading about it or hearing it from somebody else), and that
“Saprai la verità un giorno” means that you'll understand the truth by experience as you said (finding it out by doing things) or maybe learning (let's say - by reading about it, or hearing it from somebody).
Did I get it right?
This is definitely and obviously a bit tricky subject, and thanks for helping me (and a lot of other people here on DL, as well)! Greetings from sunny and hot Belgrade. =)))
