I'd like to know the meaning of the following. Unfortunately, I don't have the context. Please, help me to understand them:

1) When you are requesting (an information or any other thing, for e.g.):

- I seem to be boxed in (I'm not sure I can get out); =

- Will there be room for me to get out? =

2) When you're expressing interest:

- I go for...in a big way. =

I appreciate your kind help,

Hi Dinorah,

I'm afraid I can't make any sense of your first one. If you are boxed in, you have no options, but it doesn't relate to a request for information. I know you said you don't have context, but any additional help as to why you put them together would be good.

If you "go for something in a big way" it means that you really like it. You can feel that way about seafood, or a particular music band, or a hobby... just about anything that you really like.

Hi,Grammar Geek

Returning to the issue about this sentence : "I seem to be boxed in" (I'm not sure I can get out), as I said before, it appears in a book without any context as a 'communicative function' when we are requesting for an information or any other thing, for e.g. But you had said it doesn't relate to a request for information. So, can you give me an example in which I can use it ?

If possible, could you also, please,check if the sentence I have just written using ...to be boxed in as a request for information, makes sense?(once this function is being used in the book in this context, I tried to figure out a kind of sentence for it). Here it goes: "Excuse me, Sir. I seem to be boxed in this place. Could you please, tell me which road should I take to reach this point here, in the map?).

But, now what about "Will there be room for me to get out?" when someone is also requesting for something (e.g. an information or anything else).

Thanks in advance,

Dinorah
When you are sitting with a lot of people at a table, and you are in the corner, and the only way to get out of your seat is for everyone to get up, or for you to crawl under the table, you are boxed in.

If you are running from a back of wild raccoons, and you turn down an alley, only to realize that it was a dead and and the raccoon are now advancing on you from the one way out (the same way you came in), you are boxed in.

When you are boxed in, you have no means of leaving.

Ah - your final question is a good one. Once there were several cars in a parking lot that has part of the access blocked because of construction. The last inconsiderate jerk who parked there simply parked in the access road. None of us had enough room to get out. We were all boxed in until she came to move her car.

Note: information in not countable. You ask for information, not for an information.

And I'm so sorry, but I still don't understand how "room to get out" has anything to do with requesting information.
Ms. Geek,

Thank you very much for your explanations and kindness. For sure, ask for information. Sorry I could only be absent-minded!

Best wishes,

Dinorah
