(in meaning of growing up children)
P.S. I would appreciate if you correct my writing. Emotion: smile

Could you give me a verb that has exactly the same meaning?

And I was curious about meaning of bring in this phrasal verb. Do you see any logic between the meanings? I know that it could be idiomatic and can have no specific relation. (I was automatically using "could have" instead of "can have", but I was avoiding to make any conflict with unreal situations - could/should/would have. Is it possible to use "could have" in this case?)

Hi,

(in meaning of growing up children)
P.S. I would appreciate if you correct my writing.

Could you give me a verb that has exactly the same meaning? raise children

And I was curious about meaning of bring in this phrasal verb. Do you see any logic between the meanings? Yes
I know that it could be idiomatic and can have no specific relation.

You bring something from A to B, ie from one physical place to another.
You bring up a child, ie from one stage of life to another (childhood to adulthood)

(I was automatically using "could have" instead of "can have", but I was avoiding to make any conflict with unreal situations - could/should/would have. Is it possible to use "could have" in this case?) Please post this as a separate thread. I don't know about other people, but I usually avoid posts that ask a question and then ask another question about how they asked the question.

Thanks, and my question was exactly that. Individual meaning of "bring" is like moving something from A to B. And I think the A and the B is the most important things in bring, beginning and end. But as you said, bring means raise children that I see a process, which is the most important meaning that the verb bears, it have beginning and and, but we are emphasizing on the process. Do you know what I mean?
Clive I don't know about other people, but I usually avoid posts that ask a question and then ask another question about how they asked the question.
And yes, I see your reason, if I were you, as a one of the most active replier Emotion: smile , I would like to answer one by one and go on, and I see an order if people separate question that probably help other people to find their probable answer to their questions among previous posts, but you should (I don't know if "should" is the most fitting word, see?! it is just happen in the process, and now I should explain all things, or part of this, in a new thread and then ask my question, unless you were the same person who would answer, is this semi-conditional true? Emotion: smile or should I just add a line at the beginning that I would have asked to correct my mistakes, is this correct usage of "would"? and then I won't be sure that you saw what I mean from mistakes - that was a big parentheses ("parentheses" is a plural word but act like a unit, should I use "that" or "those" - perhaps with these new ones it should be "those" - it is an unlimited loop Emotion: smile ) ) answer them faster, like a domino, but it is like a break.
Emotion: smile
P.S. I could separate some of these question in the parentheses and I would, but it was, (again Emotion: sad ) it or those? Because "it" is presenting a concept whereas "those" is referring to my questions, sort of relevant to illustrate what I meant.
