Hello,

I would like to have a better approach to the meaning (one of the meanings) of "tend to".

For instance, given the following situation:

You are at work, and your boss come up to you and ask you to switch to another task for a while, because it is quite urgent.

Could be said: "Please, Antony, could you stop doing that and take on this for a while?".

But also: "Please, Antony, could you stop doing that and tend to this for a while?".

Thank you so much in advance.

Could be said: "Please, Antony, could you stop doing that and take on this for a while?". -- OK. 'Take on' = assume responsibility for doing.

But also: "Please, Antony, could you stop doing that and tend to this for a while?".-- OK. 'Tend to' = do what is necessary for.
