Agone is defined in dictionaries as an archaic form of "gone" (TFD)
but according to Etymonline the term is still used as a dialectal variant:
- ago (adj.) early 14c., shortened form of Old English agan, agone "departed, passed away," past participle of an obsolete verb ago "to go forth," formed from a- "away" Agone remains a dialectal variant.
I presume that it refers to some regional dialect in the UK.
Is the term commonly used within the UK? Which region of Great Britain is one most likely to come across this term?
Is agone heard or used outside the UK?
