I gotta go ?

     
     

Question

: This word ' got ' has been confusing me for a long time. Is it against the rule of grammar since ' got ' is the past tense of ' get '. Why I never hear people say ' I get to go now ' ?

RonBee

( English expert )

: I get to go would mean the same thing as I am allowed to go. I got to go is pretty much the same thing as I've got to go, but it is, I think, more emphatic. Certainly, it is informal speech.
