Is "gotten" a real word? I've never used it and it certainly sounds strange!

"Gotten" sounds very strange to English ears, but I have heard that it is in fact an older form of "got" that went over to America, possibly with the Pilgrim Fathers - early, anyway - and is preserved there while it fell out of use in Britain. This makes sense to me.

From what I remember from reading a few books on the history of language it is often the case that when a language travels to another country like English to America, the new country tends to preserve the older forms, while the country of origin moves on, linguistically speaking.<P>In Iceland the language spoken there, especially because of its relative isolation, is a much older form of the language than is spoken in the land of origin.<P>Last year I was interviewed by a student working on a doctorate in languages because I come from a part of Philadelphia in which the accent is closest to the early colonists from the southwest parts of England. The area of Philadelphia from which I come that speaks with my particular accent is quite small, just a couple of miles away in South Philadelphia the people there speak with quite a different accent - they sound more like Brooklyn, New York.<P>Anyway, she interviewed me, not for my views (HA HA) but to record my accent. She gave me lists of words to say. I was aware that my accent, even though I have lived in California since 1964, is still intact from home, and I say quite a number of words differently from most people I encounter. But there were a few surprises for me too.<P>For instance I say 'can' as in 'I can', differently from when I say 'can of peas'. I can immediately tell when I encounter someone from home - and by that I mean within literally a mile or two from where I was born and lived my childhood. The other place that most closely resembles my accent is Baltimore. Camden, New Jersey, which is actually closer in proximity to Philadelphia has a different accent.<P>The upshot is, forgive this dissertation, is that there are some of us in Philadelphia who speak more like the original colonists than the people who still live where the colonists emanted - or so I am told by this student of languages.<P>What does all this get me? Nothing - not even a free Philadelphia steak sandwich.

As for 'gotten'being an old word form from the Pilgrim days: I'm older than y'all think!

Getting back on track...<P>I've only received flowers a few times after performances. Each time it seems my very young students talk me into splitting them up and distributing them to tiny open hands.<P>Hey, it makes them feel special... even though I am certain those flowers are well mashed before they ever get home.

I got flowers for the first time this weekend. It was a pas de trois, two men and one lady. During the bows, she took two flowers out of her bouquet and gave one to each man.<P>Later, I gave it to my wife.<BR>
