两千七百多年前的战国末期,赵国名将赵奢有个儿子叫赵括,他从小读了不少兵书,跟别人谈论起军事来,没有人说得过他,就是父亲赵奢也难不住他。赵括因此很骄傲,自以为天下无敌,连父亲也不放在眼里。

Hi all. I found this in the Standard Course Book of HSK5, chapter 15. What is the meaning of 说得过?Here the 说 is pronounced shui4 or shuo1?

提前感谢。

It's pronounced as shuo1.

过 in 说得过 means 胜过(surpass, be better than). 说得过 overall means something along the lines of better in terms of speaking/arguing.

It forms a sort of pattern "verb+得/不+过". E.g. 跑不过,玩不过,打得过, etc.

没有人说得过他,
nobody could out talk him,
none was more erudite than he,
he had no equal,
he was peerless,
none was more knowledgeable than he,
