语源

(1)

Middle English gon
中古英语 gon

(2)

from Old English g3n * see gh?-
源自 古英语 g3n *参见 gh?-

用法
Go has long been used to describe the production of nonlinguistic noises, as in The train went “toot.” The cow goes “moo.” In recent years, however, younger speakers have extended this use of go to the report of speech, as in Then he goes, “You think you're real smart, don't you.” For speakers young enough to get away with it, this usage serves a useful purpose in informal spoken narrative as an explicit indicator of a direct quotation, particularly when the speaker wishes to mimic the accent or intonation of the original spoken source. Largely restricted to the “narrative present” used in vivid description, it is highly inappropriate in formal speech or writing.
Go 很久以来用来描述非语言学上的发声, 如在火车发出“突突”声, 牛“哞哞”地叫。 然而,近些年来,年轻的演讲者把go 的这一用法运用到演讲报告中去了, 如在接着他说道,“你认为你 的确 聪明,是吗?” 。 由于年轻人太年轻了而被人们忽视了这一误用,这一用法在非正式口语中作为直接引语的明显的指示词起到十分有益的作用,尤其在说话者想模仿原口语材料的重音或语调时,这一作用更明显。主要用于生动形象的“描述”里,限于陈述句现在时中,在正式的演讲或书面语中十分不适用

用法
Go has long been used to describe the production of nonlinguistic noises, as in The train went “toot.” The cow goes “moo.” In recent years, however, younger speakers have extended this use of go to the report of speech, as in Then he goes, “You think you're real smart, don't you.” For speakers young enough to get away with it, this usage serves a useful purpose in informal spoken narrative as an explicit indicator of a direct quotation, particularly when the speaker wishes to mimic the accent or intonation of the original spoken source. Largely restricted to the “narrative present” used in vivid description, it is highly inappropriate in formal speech or writing.
