It almost certainly is not the case but by saying "I want to get ...." could open a doubt as to whether you or someone else is going to take the action.Hi, guys.
Is there any differences in its nuance between "I want to get my assignment finished" and "I want to finish my assgignment."?
İn Cambridege Grammer İn Use book, the definition about the subject is;They mean virtually the same thing but I would probably use them slightly differently... with finish my assignment for a routine task and assignment finished for a little more force or emotion.
I'd love to go but I want to finish my assignment.
I want to finish my assignment before I have lunch.
I want to get my assignment finished. (I want it done, over with, put behind me... so I can do something else.) In real life, if I disliked the assignment for some reason, I wouldn't take possession of it by using "my." I would say I want to get this assignment finished.
I think it's probably a peculiarity of the way we use the verb "get" in English.I want to get my assignment finished( I will do it myself , I will not arrange somebody else)
but this sentence can have two different meanings , this situation is ambigious in my opinion
it can mean ''I will arrange somebody to finish it( according to cambridge)'' or it can mean ( I will do it , I want it done , put behind)
What is your opinion about this situation?
What is the situation for ''Get + something + done''I think it's probably a peculiarity of the way we use the verb "get" in English.
To me, "I want to get my assignment finished" can only mean I want to hurry up and finish it (myself), not I'm going to ask someone else to finish it for me.
On the other hand "I want to get my car repaired tomorrow" has the reverse meaning of I'm going to arrange for someone to do it.
It's not the same as "I want to get my assignment finished".if I made this sentence with ''have '' instead of ''get'', would the meaning be same with the sentence that includes ''get''?
I want to have my assignment finished.
Does it mean I want to finish my assigment myself or I will arrange for someone to finish it?
