From searching the web via Google, I'm finding that "conocer" can be used to express that one is meeting someone else for the first time.
Does this mean that two or more persons are meeting for the first time ever? Or does it mean for the first time within a particular day?
No conoció a su madre.
He didn't meet his mother.
The above Spanish is from a lesson I'm taking at Memrise.com. This confuses me because usually an individual is NOT meeting his mother for the first time ever. Why is it appropriate to use "conocer" in this context?
UPDATE: Perhaps I've made a faulty assumption here. In the example that I used, I assumed that 'his' is referring to the mother of 'he'. Perhaps 'his' is referring to someone else's mother. For example:
He (Roberto) did not meet his (Brian's) mother.
In this case, this meeting that did not occur would have been a first-time meeting.
I hope that I'm making sense here! :)
