Mensagem:  What must be confusing to non-natives is the tendency to rely on modal phrases in English instead of using one specific word.  It may give the impression that no one word exists, but it often does.  English speakers can take almost any verb and come up with a laundry list of meanings by merely adding a preposition.  In fact, look at what I just wrote.  come up with = create, obtain, invent   I could have said create, obtain, invent, etc.  However, I chose to take a very commonly used verb and add two prepositions.
