[T]he extremely high frequency of the verb get in conversation is more surprising for most people. This verb goes largely unnoticed, yet in conversation it is by far the single most common lexical verb. The main reason that get is so common is that it is extremely versatile, being used with a wide range of meanings. These include:I missed it by a mile. (I said 'be,' which I gather is right if you're talking about the most common verb used in writing.)
