Uses of know #2 (permalink) Sun Apr 12, 2009 20:47 pm   Uses of know
 

To know, is to have knowledge of a person or thing.

" I know you."

" I know all about cars."

" I know your brother. "

" I know where you work, and where you live.

" I know your name, it's Pnsaravanan. "

" I know how computers work. "

Know is an irregular verb.

"Know" is a verb. English uses this verb whether we are talking about having a fact in your head, being familiar with something, or understanding how to do something. Some languages have separate verbs for all those meanings, but English just has one:

"I know when the train leaves." (to know a fact)
"I know your brother very well." (to be familiar with something or someone)
"I know how to cook." (to know how to do something)

I have a question on the usage of the word know. Please have a look at the sentence below.

1) He will kill her when he knows that she has been cheating on him.

Is the usage of know in the above sentence correct?

Are the following sentences OK?

2) He will kill her when he gets to know that she has been cheating on him.
3) He will kill her when he comes to know that she has been cheating on him.

Yes, it is acceptable to use it so. Equates to, " When he finds out, or he discovers. "
