I never saw this word used so much until I came here. Is it a Canadian thing?<br><br>
Is it preferable to use instead of "the?" That seems to be how it's used. Why not just say "the?"<br><br>

Should the originating officer leave and another loan officer assume the credit relationship, how much time will be required by <b>said</b> officer to acclimate themselves with, not only the extensions of credit, but with the borrowers also.</i><br>

I see it often in legal writing. Patents, contracts, etc.<br><br>
Sometimes I get bored with "the" and use "said" instead.<br><br>
Why do you hate a diverse vocabulary?
I can't spell "aforementioned."<br><br>
I hate all words I can't spell. They should be banned.
