My take on Take is up at EDF today so I hope you'll find time to take a look. This one sprang from a TEFL session about 20 years back. The student asked a simple question. What does 'take' mean?

An exercise for you. On a sheet of paper write down every phrase you can think of containing the word take.
Take in
Taken in
Take out

You'll begin to get my drift.

Mashid, thanks for the story, dear. I hope you're well and settled.
