give out meaning

< Previous | Next >


What is the meaning of give out in this sentence?

"He gave out all her money."

I think it means he gave the money eg. to other people in need/ to his children/ to charity.

This sentence appeared in the student´s book and the little dictionary in the back of the book said that give out= spend. But I couldn´t find this meaning anywhere... Is it a mistake?

Thank you!
