    got/been

    Dear All,

    I would like to clarify the difference between " got transferred" and " have been transferred"?

    I mean when we use got + past participle verb?
    when we use have been + past participle verb?

    whhere exactly we use these forms of sentences?


    Please clarify me.


    Regards,

    Regards,
    First of all, you should know that the two expressions represent passive voice sentences.
    Got transferred is the one that can be found in colloquial usage; the other is a standard-English expression.
    In addition, got transferred conveys a sense of difficulty - the final result of rendering something transferred may have been hampered.
