In a certain context, if say "Jack" asks "Mat" during conversation about a certain person whether he remembers him or not and "Mat" should say :
- I have forgotten.............
- I forgot.................
Which is better for the situation and why?
please i need help and I'm supposed to argue about the proper use of each one.
what is the difference between theses two?
in terms of semantics and in terms of grammar?
Thanks, but actually there is no question its more like an ordinary conversation and this person ends up saying i have forgotten / i have forgot his name.
so which is better for use in this situation and how can i differentiate between them in terms of grammar.
meaning when can i use each one and how do they function.
is there a rule?
'I have forgotten/forgot his name' is correct, as our dear Bhai states,
'I forgot his name' is correct too, in American English.
