    Usage notes
    In dialects featuring the past participle gotten, the form "gotten" is not used universally as the past participle. Rather, inchoative and concessive uses (with meanings such as "obtain" or "become", or "am permitted to") use "gotten" as their past participle, whereas stative uses (with meanings like "have") use "got" as their past participle http://www-personal.umich.edu/~jlawler/aue/gotten.html] and [http://www.miketodd.net/encyc/gotten.htm http://www.miketodd.net/encyc/gotten.htm, thus enabling users of "gotten"-enabled dialects to make distinctions such as "I've gotten (received) my marks" vs. "I've got (possess) my marks"; a subtle distinction, to be sure, but a useful one. The first example probably means that the person has received them, and has them somewhere, whereas the second probably means that they have them in their hand right now.
