Word of the Day-11


yetişip geçmek, sollamak; ansızın yakalamak, bastırmak

[T] to go past something by being a greater amount or degree

Our US sales have now overtaken our sales in Europe.
We'd planned to hold a meeting tomorrow, but events have overtaken us(= things have changed).

[I or T] UK (US pass) to come from behind another vehicle or a person and move in front of them

Always check your rear view mirror before you overtake (another car).
