    I am not sure I got it. Could have got something with my English - it got better, but it is still limited.

    I agree entirely, we should replace it with "getted".

    Re: Got

    Heck you guys are knuckle draggers, there is just so much no way that got (has) to be used,
    there are many more descriptive words to use.

    My English teacher said you could replace any use of the word got or get if you think a little bit harder about what you want to say.

    Re: Got

    When some one says i got my shopping, how did they got it, shop lifted it, paid for it lawfully,
    it should be (i purchased it), there are just so many ways not to use the word got.

    Got it!:biggrin: Ok, I was kidding!
    But haven't he told you why we should do this? for the sake of thinking harder, thinking of what we say a bit more or simply because that was we speak more beautifully?

    Re: Got

    "Gonna" is a word in the same category (is it even a word?). I know someone who uses it excessively, what's wrong with saying "going to"?

    You've GOT to post in other forums, not General Discussion, to get your count up. Got it? :biggrin:

    Re: Got

    I also hate the word 'got', but it is useful in a casual conversation.
