    Re: phrasal verb-go...

    I am not sure I understand the question, but I do have a couple of suggestions. Here are a few possibilities:
    I was so nervous I couldn't say a word, but everybody in the room encouraged me to go for it.

    I was so nervous I couldn't say a word, but everybody in the room encouraged me to go ahead with my presentation.

    I was so nervous I couldn't say a word, but everybody in the room encouraged me to go forward with my plan.

    I was so nervous I couldn't say a word, but everybody in the room encouraged me to go ahead and do what I had said I was going to do.

    I was so nervous I couldn't say a word, but everybody in the room encouraged me to go home.

    As you can see, there are several possibilities.

    Thank you for the suggestions

    This is an example from a test in the English competition and the instruction was to fill in the phrasal verb with its particle.

    If you don't know what the verb is supposed to mean then the "particle" could be anything.
