R26 Go+verb

Lesson Twenty-six

go + verb

Many Americans use the verb “go” and then a verb in the simple form. Some English speakers consider this a mistake or poor usage, but you should know about this. Here are some examples:

  • Let’s go eat.
  • David went to go get a snow blower.
  • We need to go find a new apartment.
  • Go get it!

Whether you like this form or not, you will hear this in the United States. However, keep in mind that the verb “go” can’t be used with all verbs. This is something that you will have to develop an ear for.
