I never use that word.
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/31/12 - 4:19:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
seems rather unnecessary when you could just say bought?
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 2/1/12 - 1:57:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Is that a word? What does it mean?
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 2/1/12 - 2:01:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
I limit my language to English.
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 2/1/12 - 2:55:11 AM EST (GMT-5)
Can you use it in a sentence? I can't imagine how that would work...
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 2/1/12 - 4:03:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
I use languages other than English and I don't even know it.

While I haven't used it, I could see how I might if I were trying to be humorous.

I've bought 5 bags of cheetos at one time before.

No. I would never say boughten. It's not a word and it's unnecessary.
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/2/12 - 7:29:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
so what is a 'word'? does its status change the moment a dictionary is published?
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/2/12 - 7:37:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
Nope.

So this is the *correct* past participle of buy, or what? Just old fashioned, a strange alternative?
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/2/12 - 7:46:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
nah quite a rare form from North America it seems - I'm not sure how old it is. I never heard it til the other day on Youtube,
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/2/12 - 10:20:32 AM EST (GMT-5)
Haha I have...wife always corrects me.
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Thursday 2/2/12 - 10:11:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Nope just bought
9 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 2/14/12 - 12:17:42 PM EST (GMT-5)
No

My little brother used to use that word. I'd get mad every time.
6 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 11/16/14 - 6:13:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only when I've purchased a a boxen of doughnuts.
6 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 2/16/15 - 3:38:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I'm not an idiot.
6 months ago - Sunday 11/22/20 - 12:17:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, never.
