What does "I beg" mean?
To "beg" means to plead with someone or desperately ask someone for something, often over and over again. "Beg" is different from "ask" because it usually means that someone desperately needs or wants something, and so they request something because of their need. Ex: The homeless man is begging for food. Ex: I begged him to come with me but he wouldn't. Ex: Children should learn not to beg. Instead, they should ask politely.
