Can you tell me what means get + adjective? I do not understand it. Can you tell me more about this grammatical structure?
I found this sentence in one book.
As we get older we need less sleep.
Thanks for help.

In simple terms, all 'get' means here is 'become'.
So 'As we get older' just means 'as we become older'.
We use this a lot in English, for instance: 'you will get taller', 'you might get richer', etc.
