    want vs ask

    I don't know If it was asked before .

    can we use ever verb ask instead of want ?
    and what does "ask for " means ? and in which context can it be used ?
    when should we prefer to use "want" , "ask" or ask for ?

    thanks in advance

    No, you cant use "ask" for "want" or vice versa. If you are hungry and you want a sandwich, you go to the sandwich shop and you ask the assistant for a sandwich. The assistant will then ask you what you want in your sandwich.

    Re: want vs ask

    First of all ,thanks for your fast reply.
    what about "what do you want from me ? "

    Does it mean " What do you ask for me (ask me for )? "

    İt is very confusing to me .
