Does "pass on" mean "go over, leave out, don't want to refer to ..."? Could you please give me some examples when explaining the meaning? Thanks a lot.

Hi,

There's also the expression 'I'll pass on that', meaning 'I don't choose to do or accept that'.

A: Would you like to go to the movies with us?

B: No, thanks. I'll pass.

I believe this comes from the game of poker, where one says 'Pass' if one does not want to bet.

Best wishes, Clive

pass on (to someone or something ) =to leave the person or thing being dealt with and move on to another person or thing.
Thank you all. Actually I was trying to look for "I don't choose to do or accept that" meaning. Thank you Clive.
