Subject: go/come with
I was transplanted from Michigan to Kentucky about twelve years ago
and have been using some expressions that have puzzled my Kentucky friends ever since. I'm always telling people "I want to come (or go) with" or asking "Do you want to come with?" The only other people I've heard use these expressions is my immediate family; not even our friends in Michigan recognize the term
(if it helps, my father is from northern Illinois and my mother was raised in
northern Maine.) Does anyone know where we picked this up at?
