You can say "I forgot to bring my dictionary with me today." That means you didn't remember to bring your dictionary with you earlier today ("earlier today" = one specific time in the past).

You can use "I forget" this way:
"I sometimes forget to bring my my dictionary with me." That means that you don't always remember to bring your dictionary with you. You are not speaking about one specific time. You are speaking about a more general fact. In this case, you are describing a general, personal habit of yours -- something that has happened on various occasions in the past and is also likely to happen on various occasions in the future.
Thanks.

When someone asks me a friend's name and I don't remember. What should I say? "I forget his name"? or "I forgot his name"? I can not recall his name. It's a state that will go on unless someone tells me his name. Thanks.
I forgot his name.

Hi Chariot

When you cannot remember someone's name now at the moment, it would be typical to say any one of these:
- I forget his name.
- I have forgotten his name.
- I can't remember his name.

In my opinion, it would not be typical to say "I forgot his name" in this situation since that would suggest that the state (the forgetting) is finished and therefore you remember his name now.
