Talk:go for it

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search


I've searched in vain for a French translation of this idiom. I was hoping to translate an article from The Onion:Authorities Investigating Suicide Determine Victim Really Went For It. Gronky (talk) 21:52, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

First step is to get the English right, in my opinion. The interjection is actually the verb used in the imperative mood. So we need two verb senses, and zero interjective ones. Mglovesfun (talk) 22:09, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

It should not be re-entered without careful consideration.

Rfd-redundant: Both interjections. They are redundant to both verbs, simply the imperative of the verb. Compare Talk:halt where it was decided to delete the interjection as it was simply the imperative form of the verb. Mglovesfun (talk) 10:08, 21 May 2012 (UTC)

Delete the interjections as redundant to the verbs and SOPs.​—msh210 (talk) 16:12, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

I've nominated the verbs also. They are just "go for" (try to attain) + "it" or "go for" (undertake) + "it".​—msh210 (talk) 16:12, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

The verb idiom is not without support at go for it at OneLook Dictionary Search, notably RHU. DCDuring TALK 16:35, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
