Dressed vs Got dressed


Look at these two sentences please:

  • He washed and dressed in the bathroom.
  • He washed and got dressed in the bathroom.

I assume that both sentences are correct. I also assume that the only difference between the first and the second one is that in the second sentence is emphasized the action to get dressed. Can anyone confirm that?

Thanks. :slight_smile:

There is virtually no difference between those two. I do not really see a difference in emphasis. The only thing I would say is that “got dressed” feels slightly more colloquial.

Alright, Dozy. I’d say it’s good news. Thanks again for your helpfulness.

See you soon.
