|Meaning 1||to stand up, to rise||私は朝の４時半ごろにそわそわし出したが、６時まで起きなかった。
"I began to stir about 4:30 in the morning but I didn't get up until 6:00."
|Meaning 2||to happen||２、３日おきに電話して、そうすればもしなにか起きても連絡が保てるから。

|Comment||The problem is distinguishing "get up" and "wake up" in meaning A. The old meaning of "get up" has apparently nearly disappeared in modern Japanese.|
