    Almost the same with refernce to purpose. These terms act as interjections and used in calling the start of a race.
    Get! Ready!= be in a state of readiness or preparedness(to start/go)
    Get! Set! = Take your position (to start/go)
    The usual call is:
    Get! Ready! Go!
    or
    Get! Set! Go!
