>Leo does not give the meaning "recognize" for "kennen", but my paper >dictionary does. So, in this case, Leo has missed a meaning. That is, cause "recognize" typically means "erkennen" (as in "I think I recognize him, it's Harry Potter!") where "kennen" means "to know" (as in "I know that guy, he's no good."). >The problem with dictionaries is that they do not give the enough >information about the ussage of words, especially technical computer >terms. Plus, they are lightyears behind actual use of language. Try searching for terms like "we're hosed!". Or get the right attributes of "fett" in contemporary youth speak...
