Q: O que significa "I'll have a big look"?
A: I have never heard someone ever say, "I'll have a big look". Neither have I really heard anyone say exactly I'll "have a small look".

I would assume "I'll have a big look" would mean that you would spend time observing something carefully or you would observe a lot of it. A "small look" would mean the opposite.

But, I have heard people say "I'll take a small peek", "A little look.", I'll take a quick peek.", "I took a long look.","I'll take a look around."
Q: O que significa You look mere ?
A: Oh, sorry!
Hmm, well that is a name, though I am sure you want a describing word.

Could it be 'manly'? That is the only thing I could come up with. It does not sound like Mia (みあ) though.
