    No. If I ignored this question I would not answer it. But because I just want to fill you with knowledge and enlighten you I am well not really talking to you but not ignoring you. I suppose in a conversation you can sort of be not be paying attention and half way be ignoring someone

    Ignoring someone means behaving as if s/he does not exist whereas not answering means failing to reply to a question or comment.

    No - those two notions are almost opposites.

    No, but they can be very similar or work together depending on the context. Ignoring is very intentionally not acknowledging someone. Talking is just talking.

    Jane ignored my suggestion and staring talking to Eliza.

    Jane was talking to Eliza when I walked into the room. She didn't see me.

    It can. The refusal to answer is often an act of ignoring the question.

    I mean it sort of is but ignoring is definitely intentional whereas not talking to someone might be accidental
