What is the meaning of, I'll get it , in below passage : Penny was picking up a pile of wood , doing jody's work. Jody ran to him .
"I'll get it , Pa! " . Jody said . I think that " I'll get it "or "I get it " means here " I do it " , is it correct? Or if I would say " I've got it " , it could be mean " I've done it " , correct?


Assuming that Jody's father's name is Penny I'll get it means I will take the wood that you are carrying.

A simpler way to say it would be:

Penny was picking up a pile of wood, doing jody's work. Jody ran to him. "I will take it, pa!" Jody said.

  • Thank you ! I think I understand it now! Get means here take sth or carry sth from one place to another place. You know what ? Before I thought it means I'll do it , for example if your mother said you " Do your homework " or " clean your room " you could say " I'll get it " instead of " I'll do it " . But now I think I was completely wrong. It just means "take " here. For example you can say " I'll get an umbrella, it's raining " instead of " I'll take an umbrella " or " I'll get her some woods " instead of " I'll take her some woods " I mean get and take are synonymous where you carry sth – F_kh Dec 25 '18 at 13:27
