Hang on

Hang on
1. To hold on to something.
 "Bill almost fell off the cliff, 
but managed to hang on until help came."

2. To continue; persist and not give up.
 "Hang on a bit longer and things will improve"
*Similar to the expression "hang in there"

3. To keep something.
"Hang onto that number, 
you might need it in the future."

 4. To wait.
"Could you hang on a moment I forgot my coat."

Often used as an exclamation to show 
disbelief at another's statement and request clarification.
"Hang on, your telling me you wrestled a bear and won?"
