    got or gotten

    I've got a problem.
    Have you ever got/gotten lost on the subway?


    hi,
    what's the right way for the second sentence, please?
    thanks.

    You'd say that in America. Generally not in BrE or AusE. But my recent reading has suggested that NZ is beginning to use "gotten" instead of "got".
