In US and in UK respectively, which is more popular as the past participle of forget: forgotten or forgot? Which is more formal/informal?
I haven't forgot(ten) you.
You will not be forgot(ten).
The OED describes the use of the past participle forgot as 'archaic' and 'poetical'.
Grammatically speaking I don't really think haven't forgot is a cardinal sin compared to some usages that make it into popular parlance, but it does seem that people mostly get this one right.
Honestly speaking, as an educated southerner and an ESL instructor, I needed to look up the past participle of this word one more time. I interchange between the two without noticing. Sometimes I say, "I have forgot my keys." Sometimes I say, "She's forgotten her money." I would say both are accepted as past participle forms in the Appalachian region and southeastern United States. I heard my doctor say, "You haven't forgot what I told you, have ya?" He has a degree in medicine from Emory University. In my informal speech I often use words that the British stopped using hundreds of years ago. My ancestors wanted to keep a piece of the motherland (Great Britain) so they made a conscious effort to use words and phrases such as "gotten" and "yonder."
"I have forgot your name.", is the Present Tense in the Future Tense; while, "I have forgotten your name.," is the Past Tense in the Future Tense. ~ Adin Xol | @aobi_music
