Grumble grumble

A kid is a baby goat

Mayo is a county in Ireland

Gotten is an American word

Go figure - what exactly does that mean?

Fess up - use the proper word

Shrooms - why not just say mushroom?

Gifted means having an outstanding talent at a particular thing

Gift is not a verb, it is a noun

A city has a cathedral, a village has a church, a hamlet has no church

That is all.

Weeeeeeel, actually, Gotten is an English word that we natives dropped, in the 17c, the settlers took it to the USA where it remains in everyday use
