Hi
Does "take" mean "accept" or "have"?
"Do you take milk in your coffee?"

Hi Tara.

It is more (to me) like "have".

"Do you usually have milk in your coffee?"
"Do you want to have milk in this coffee?"

I still have this strange urge to treat you as Irish - it's the green hat and the name Tara!

I'm afraid that doesn't work at all . . .

1. This container will take six litres.
2. This container will has six litres.
This container is six litres.
This is a six-litre container.


**********
It seems to be both - Irish Gaelic: "meeting place of kings" - a girl's name.
Sanskrit, Hindi, Urdu, Nepali, Marathi, Persian, Punjabi, Kurdish, Bengali, Telugu, Sinhalese: "Star" - a girl's name.

That's strange - I thought the Persian girl's name "star" was Vashti.

Thanks again Drago :)
"Setareh" is a Persian girl's name. "Setareh" means "Star". But "Tara" is another name and different from "Star" (Or "Setareh" in Persian)

Or: This container will hold six liters.



So maybe I've learned a word of Farsi … or maybe not?

Thank you NKM. "Take" is more difficult than "get".
Yes it's a word of Farsi "setareh" (in Persian or Farsi)="star".
