    Smile Can I exchange this?

    I'd like to ask about "leave" and "forget."
    Would you take a look at the following sentence?

    1) I left my bag in the bus.

    Can I exchange "left" to "forgot" like sentence 2)?
    2) I forgot my bag in the bus.

    Thank you.

    Re: Can I exchange this?

    When we use 'forget', we don't name the place, so you can't. You will occasionally hear it, but most would regard it as an error.
