Use of the verb GET Why verb 'GET' is used in these two sentences in different sense? 1) We got hom at about 3.00 in the morning. 2) He got the wrong bus to the airport. In any other cases I can use the verb 'GET'? Thank you !

Because 'get' can mean many things! On its own, 'get' has three main meanings: - to arrive/to reach - to take/obtain - to become Your two sentences are examples of the first two. 'He got ill' is an example of the third. 'Get' can also combine with other little words to mean hundreds of different things - get off, get out, get up, get though and many more. It's a hardworking little word!
