Get a move on!

get-a-move-on

Notice the reduced vowel for the article, and the stress not on the preposition this time, but on “move”, which we’re used to being a verb, but here it’s a noun. As it’s stressed, the vowel should be nice and long.

This means “hurry up”, but be careful, it’s quite direct, and not really polite. Don’t say it to your grandmother/boss/prime minister etc..
