This question already has an answer here:
I was trying to translate a text from Brazilian-Portuguese into english and I got stuck at a slang phrase we have. Here in Brazil, we use the word "puxar" ("to pull" in English) with an additional meaning close to: "to inherit or mimic a parent's trait or behavior". I'm not sure if there is an equivalent word or phrase in English. Can anyone help me find a verb or a verb-like expression that means it?
