Dear Teacher Thanks for your answers about forfet/forgot. I feel great now.

May I ask you another question about “I got it." or “I get it?”

Often time I heard that the following:

Q1 “Do you know what I mean/say " A: I got it." B: “I get it".

Which answer is right? Maybe both are right. Why?

Just I would like to ask if they have similar usage with forget/forgot.

If Q1 is change the word “mean/say” into meant/said, complete sentence is “Do you know what I mean/said”

I marked it as Q2.

Q2: “Do you know what I meant/said” " A: I got it." B: “I get it".

Which answer is right? Why?

Q3: And I wonder what on earth the difference if I use mean and meant or use say or said in the clause.

I usually hesitate which tense I should use when I’m making a or saying a sentence in the clause,

Off course I know that meant and said are the past tense of mean and say.

Thanks millions.

Hello!

Q1- got it means you understood it. get it means you understand it. (past or present tense)

Q2/Q3...again its all in the 'tense'....

got it, forgot, meant, said means in some previous time
get it, forget, mean, say is present.

You're doing well tho...keep up the great work!

The correct answer should be: Yes, I do.

Did you see Mary this morning? Yes I did.
The answer should follow the aux. word used in the question.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Dear dimsumexpress

I should Follow the Aux. I got it.

But I do really want to know if I directly to say i got it. it's wrong or not?



Thanks a lot.
In everyday conversation, certain percentage of the population only care about getting the message across and pay very little attention to grammar. With that said, I personally would avoid it.

<<<But I do really want to know if I directly to can say I got it. it's wrong or not?>>


On a side note, " I really want to know " and " I do want to know " practically mean the same thing.
Thank you very much. Mr. dimsumexpress
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.

Both are informal of course. But 'I get it' can appear rude in some situations, inferring the speaker has talked for too long.

'I got it's is much more common and means 'I understand/understood'.
