    Gotten is probably the most distinctive of all the American English/British English grammatical differences,It is not simply an alternative for have got. Gotten is used in such contexts as - They've gotten a new boat. (= obtain)- They've gotten interested. (= become)- He's gotten off the chair. (= moved)But it is not used in the sense of possession (= have). American English does not allow- I've gotten the answer.- I've gotten plenty.The availability of gotten does however mean that American English can make such distinctions as the following:- They've got to leave (they must leave)V.S- They've gotten to leave (they've managed to leave).However, I don’t use ‘gotten’ as it makes you sound like a stupid American… and nobody would want that now would they?
