Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Verb Phrase 180. All right. Today the verb
phrase is" go ahead." And we actually got five meanings that we're going cover
today. So let's look at the first one. To continue with a task or continue with
a plan. Even if there's problems or difficulties. So even though there's
problems. You go ahead and do it. Finish it. All right. So let's look at the first
example we have for number one. Even though the weather forecast predicts
rain she decided to go ahead with the party. If it rains, we will move all the
activities inside. So maybe she was planning this for a few weeks. She
invited people. She was planning on having doing everything outside. But it
looks like it's going to rain. But she's ... let's just have it anyway we'll just
move everything inside. Just in case the rain really does come. Okay. Number two.
The boss said to go ahead with the project. Even if we end up going over our
original budget. Yes. So he's giving them the okay.
You could go ahead and do it. So again both of these there were some problems
and somebody said go ahead and do it. Go ahead and continue. All right. Number two
here. To bring or move ahead of someone or something. Now this one sounds a
little bit more physical. Okay. You could tell somebody go ahead and you do ... You know,
you move ahead. You move faster. You go ahead and do something, ahead of you. So
you go ahead and drop off your schoolbag at home. And I'll meet you at the corner
after I pick up a drink. And then maybe they're going to go somewhere else. But
maybe this is a mother or you know telling the kid you go home drop off the
bag then come down. I'll get a drink in the meantime. So you go ahead and do that.
Okay. Or you know, you could also say go ahead like you know, if somebody was in
the street you know, blocking you or you're blocking somebody, you could tell them
to like physically move ahead . Yeah I know I'm moving too slow you just go ahead. So
I'll get out of your way. So here we really mean like physically move ahead.
All right. Number three here. To tell someone to move ahead
or do something before you. It means like you're going to wait. You're going to allow
them to do it before you do it. All right. So you go ahead and take the elevator.
I'm still waiting for my wife. You know, but maybe it looked like you were
standing there first. Or the person's you know , not sure. You say, you just go ahead
and do it. I'm going to wait. You know, you do it before I do it. Yeah. Number four. To
tell someone to take action and do something and not wait for you. All right. This is
like a planned event that you were going to do together. Go ahead to the restaurant
first and order I'll probably arrive about 20 minutes later. Okay. So maybe the
person's coming from work or they get something else they got to do. You go
ahead and start it. So if this were you know, your wife or family or friends, they
go they go into the restaurant first and start ordering and start eating you'll
arrive later. Okay. Go ahead and start watching that rented
movie without me . I've seen it already. So this is along the same line. You're
telling somebody to take action first. Go ahead don't wait for me.
All right and number five here. To go into the lead. So this one's used a lot in
sports. The Yankees scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to go
ahead of the Red Sox by score of three to two. Okay. Anyway, I hope you got it. I
hope you know, you might have already known a couple of these meanings of go
ahead. But hopefully there's some you didn't know and you learned today.
Anyway, thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
