I love his formula: “The formula for constructing this type of sentence is present auxiliary + past participle, not present aux. + past tense.” Problem is, Aaron my dear, that the simple past tense and the past participle ARE THE SAME THING FOR A REGULAR VERB – eg. work, worked, worked and in Brit English the past participle of ‘get’ is ‘got’, just as the simple past is also ‘got’.

A friend who was traveling in Japan in the days when hitch-hiking was still considered a friendly way of getting from here to there, got a ride from a Japanese couple, and with the aid of a little knowledge of the language and a pocket phrase-book, she asked "Where are you going to?"
