    Hi,

    I have found this sentence: "The ring got stucked on his finger." Shouldn´t it be only "got stuck" as a past participle of "stick"?
    Is it an American expression?

    Thank you

    There is no such word as "stucked". You are correct. The sentence should read: The ring got stuck on his finger.

    It isn't an American expression, duden. Regularly used in the UK, too.

    Really, Your Majesty? I've never heard it used here or in the UK by anyone more than 6 years old (the same moppets who say they "singed" a song in school today.)

    Sorry Joelline. I wasn't referring to "get stucked" but to "got stuck". "Stucked", as you rightly say, is kiddie talk. :)
