  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.
