different words and/or phrases:

- get, v.
reach with a blow or hit in a particular spot; "the rock caught her in the
back of the head"; "The blow got him in the back"; "The punch caught him
in the stomach"
If you want to post your own weekly vocab, please do not send it to
the list directly. To prevent unbalanced amounts of new vocab, send
it to <weeklyvocab@...> in order to enqueue it in the
regular weekly posting process. Just write a mail as if addressing
the list directly -- it will be forwarded as is.
