Gotten is not a word in English. I think it is a part of the American language.
Duolingo defaults to American English, as unfortunate a choice as that is.
Gotten is indeed a word in English. Americans speak English, so it's allowed. You may not like it for some reason, but your feelings aside, it's valid.
"Americans speak English"??? It certainly doesn't sound like it! The least DL could do is accept 'got' if they absolutely want to insist on a past participle.
DL still rejects 'got'. Does anyone ever read our reports?

Danes would you normally use lykkelig or glad in this scenario?
I too would like to know the answer to this. Anyone?
In english I would de tempted to add a "she": ...and she is very... . Can that be done in Danish?
Yes it can but it is not neccesary as it is implied that it is still hers. Just like in English.
Please fix this. Gotten is not used in British English. I used 'got' and it's marked wrong. What we'd actually say is 'The little girl finally has a dog...'. Got/gotten isn't needed at all.
The English sentence feels unnatural
Natural would be "... and SHE is happy"
I too hate the word gotten (Im English!)
Should "at last" instead of "finally" not be accepted?
