Grade 9 Grammar Lesson 17 The verb ‘have’ (1)

  • Both have and have got mean possess. So we can use either have or have got.
  • When have means possess, questions and negatives can be formed in three different ways:
  • We can use have got or have for illness, pain etc.
  • When have is used to mean possess, it doesn’t have continuous forms.
  • In questions and negatives we normally use do/does/did for present and past tense.
  • The past form of have or have got is had.
  • When have is an action verb meaning eat/drink/take, we use
  • am/is/are/was/were/have/has/had as auxiliary verbs for different tenses.
