Yes majlo, you could say 'I obtain knowledge' and would be understood. But the usual phrase is 'I acquire knowledge' or 'I gain knowledge'. Also 'I receive knowledge'. I've also heard 'I get knowledge' but this is rarer.majlo said:Can I say that I obtain knowledge? If not, could you give me some appropriate verbs which collocate with knowledge?
Small corrections.Thomas1 said:These are verbs which I'd use with knowledge:
You acquire or gain knowledge, then you use it and share it. You may happen to require a specialist knowledge and provide someone with it. If you want to increase your knowledge on any specific area you should develop it through studying.
In which case, majlo, it should read 'You may be required to obtain a specialist knowledge........ .'majlo said:Victoria, I don't know if I am correct but Thomas meant that I am the person that will be required a specialist knowledge, and not the person that will require the knowledge from others. Am I right Thomas?
So, is obtain feasible in collocation with knowledge?la reine victoria said:In which case, majlo, it should read 'You may be required to obtain a specialist knowledge........ .'
Hello Thomas.Thomas1 said:So, is obtain feasible in collocation with knowledge?
I wanted to say: ...required to have a specialist knowledge... it was my negligence, sorry about that
BTW: a boss can require knowledge from an employee, so is it possible the statement that the employee is required knowledge (by his boss)?
