About 20 years ago, I noticed that some teen agers were using
"goes" or "go" instead of "said." For example, "I go ......" or
he goes....." Now, almost everyone 35 or under never uses the word
"said" in speech. Is this only in California or all over the country?

I wonder how or why this speech pattern developed and will it be reflected
in future dictionaries.
