    Keep on

    Hello: I'm not very sure of the translation of "Keep on" in the following sentence: " Why do you keep on phoning her all the time?". Does it mean that you are continuing phoning her or does it have another meaning?.
    Thank you in advance.

    Yes, "keep" or "keep on" means "continue".

    Thank you, but I have another question, in the following sentence what the meaning of "keep on" is:"I wish he wouldn’t keep on his new car all the time", beacuse I don't think it means continue, do it?.

    I don't know. That sentence doesn't mean anything to me.
