There are different semantic meanings behind "to meet" which may have different synonyms or different translations into various languages. Would anybody care to comment?

  1. To meet by arrangemet
    Let's meet at the station at 9 o'clock.
  2. To meet by accident
    Guess who I met at the supermarket today?
    Fancy meeting you here!
  3. To converge
    The two roads meet at an intersection.
  4. To satisfy
    This proposal meets my requirements.

Originally I was only thinking about #1 and #2 but Babelfish translates "meet" into Spanish "satisfacer" (#4) whereas I always use "encontrar". Interestingly, whenever I use "encontrar" it sounds funny to me because it also means "find" which makes me wonder if there's a better Spanish word for meeting by arrangement... — Hippietrail 00:43, 29 Sep 2004 (UTC)
