Is 'gotten' a word?


Recommended Posts

Well, it's a gray area. I say it's a slang term.

"You could have got caught"-Original

So it's not really a word, it's how you say the word that makes it sound like that.

"You could have gotten caught"The way it's sounds when said.

When I type 'gotten' in Microsoft Word, it doesn't say it's wrong.
