Find Definition and Meaning

Find is a transitive verb that is used to refer to finding a thing or person by chance or looking for it. For example: “My mother found the keys to the apartment.”

In this sense, you can refer to finding something that was lost and bumping into it by chance, as can also happen to a person. “I found my friend in the supermarket and we talked for a while.”

The word find is also used to invent or discover something, for example: “I have faith that the cure for Zika will soon be found.” Also, it is used to notice the change of a quality or circumstance: “find your son very changed.”

On the other hand, the verb found, used as a pronominal, indicates the way a certain person is, for example: “your mother was very sick.” It also expresses the place of a person or thing, “I am in Paris, in the city of love.”

Synonyms to find are: find, bump, stumble, hit, discover, notice, hit. The antonyms, meanwhile, are: desatinar, misunderstand, move away, etc.

Etymologically, the word find comes from the Latin afflare which meant ‘blow towards something’, ‘touch something with the breath’, ‘smell the hint of something’, and finally the word was left with the meaning ‘find something, find it’.

Is it written here, there, there?

The three terms are correct, and despite being pronounced similarly, they are written differently and have different meanings:


Halla is the conjugate form of the verb to find, as the third person singular of the present indicative, or the second person singular of the imperative. ´´Find your identification document before going out with your friends´´, ´´my office is in the capital´´.


The term beech can be used as a noun and verb. In the first case, it is used to identify the large gray bark tree, white and hard wood, which is used to build furniture. On the other hand, in the case of being used as a verb, it corresponds to a verbal form of the verb to have, for example: ´´in case there is meat, I stop at the market´´.


As a person, the person in charge of the education and care of children is known. For example: “my youngest aunt will be the aya of my children”.
