    Knock is a synonym for screw where I was dragged up - my French teacher
    did her best to explain it to us.

    The term "knock up" has at least two different meanings.

    One relates to actions when one lives in an apartment house and the
    upstairs neighbor makes excessive noise.

    I take you are not thinking of the UK usage meaning "to awaken
    someone".
