To my confusion, the definition and its example sentence do not seem like the same thing.
The definition says "to come into being""to start to exist""to take form". But then its example sentence is more like "to conceive (a child)" rather than "to appear""to start to exist." Can it be applied to both physical objects and living things? Or is it restricted to the latter?
Thank you all for taking the time to answer my question! I deeply deeply appreciate it!
