Go

(Anglo-Saxon, gan, ic ga, I go.)

Here's a go
or Here's a pretty go. Here's a mess or awkward state of affairs. It is no go. It is not workable. “Ça ira, ” in the French Revolution (it will go), is a similar phrase. (See Great Go, and Little Go.)

Go

(The). All the go. Quite the fashion; very popular; la vogue.
