To describe events which began in the past which continue to the present.
I know that
"he has been hurt for 5 minutes" and "it has been tangled for 5 minutes" are correct
but what if we use the verb "get" which means "to become", then can we say
"he has been getting hurt for 5 minutes" and "it has been getting tangled for 5 minutes", RIGHT?
but sometimes people use the present perfect instead of the present perfect continuous to express the duration.
For example, instead of saying "I have been working here for 5 years", they will say "I have worked here for 5 years".
If that is the case, then can we say
"he has got hurt for 5 minutes" and "it has got tangled for 5 minutes"?
But if we say like that then people may think "has got" means "has" and they think the above 2 sentences are not correct.
For example, "I have got a car" means "I have a car"
But again, American says "he has gotten" not "he has got", so they may say the spelling is not correct. It should be
"he has gotten hurt for 5 minutes" and "it has gotten tangled for 5 minutes"?
This is VERY CONFUSING.
