    Have we forgot (audio)

    But what about the person who's being captured? Have we forgot that part of the bargain?
    Have we forgot.mp3
    (BBC Radio 4; The Digital Human)

    Have I caught it correctly?

    Thanks.

    That's what I'm hearing as well.

    I also never knew that BE says "to have forgot" and not "to have forgotten." I learn something new about my own language all the time!

    We don't.

    The speaker sounded to me like a speaker of AmE.

    I'm really sorry to butt in, but please allow me to say a few words here.
    She(Her accent) sounds like Irish to me...

    I'm not a native speaker.
