    What is the different between "go on" and "go ahead".

    What is the different between "go on" and "go ahead".
    Is that the same meaning?

    That depends on context. Do you have a sentence?

    This one. The maleficent ask the girl go away.
    Can "go on" instead with "go ahead"? Is there the same meaning?

    Jason, your question should be 'What is the difference ...'

    You have now added 'go away' to 'go on' and 'go ahead'.

    'Go away' means 'move to a different place'. It does not mean 'go on' or 'go ahead.

    I just got a little interested in this topic---Supposing two people are in discussion. One has to pick up his cell phone when it rings. After he finishes his call, he may say "Go on" or "Go head" to indicate another to continue?
