try to understand different uses

of ‘ HAVE ‘ in different ways:- 

 

Surabh: Bro, have you seen any pen here ? I had just

                kept here on this table.

Gaurav: No, I haven’t. Don’t you have another pen?

DIFFERENT USES OF HAVE

‘ HAVE ‘ HAS THREE MAIN USES:-

I. In a Sense of Possession

II. Replacement with Main Verb.

I. In a sense of Possession

HAVE is used in a sense of  Possession in

 three different ways in different sentences. 

It is categorized in the following ways as

different forms of verbs:-

a. As a Helping Verb

b. In an Essay Writing

c. As the Main Verb

 

a. As a Helping Verb

b. In an Essay Writing

c. As a Main Verb

  Do you have my pen ?

  Yes , I have your pen.

II. Replacement with the Main Verb

There are four Verbs that are replaced with HAVE, because their use with HAVE sounds better. Moreover, the use of such verbs directly leaves sometimes very awkward impression. So it is supposed better to replace those action verbs with HAVE

These verbs are:-

a. Eat

b. Drink

c. Take

d. Keep

a. EAT

I EAT 2 apples daily.

I HAVE two apples daily.

b. DRINK

I drink a glass of milk each night before sleeping.

I HAVE a glass of milk each night before sleeping.

Remember:

Drink is often used in a sense of having alcohol .

As a result, doesn’t leave a very good impression. So ,

it’s always better to use HAVE for ‘ drinking water or

drinking any  beverage.

c. TAKE

You can TAKE  my pen .

You can HAVE  my pen.

d. KEEP

You always KEEP your home clean.

You always HAVE your home clean.

e. BATH/SHOWER

 Go and BATH . You have returned from a long journey. ( Verb )

 Go and HAVE bath. You have returned from a long journey. ( Noun)

NOTE: In sentence one BATH is a verb while in the second sentence BATH is used as a Noun.

III. AS AN AUXILIARY VERB FOR EMPHASIZING OR HIGHLIGHTING SOME ABSTRACT NOUNS

a. Sleep
b. Day
c. Time
d. Idea

e. Bath/Shower

Examples

I had a sound sleep yesternight.

I always have a good time with you.

I have a great day always whenever I am with my friends.

You always have some good ideas in your mind.

Go and have bath ,you’ll feel somewhat refreshed. 

IV. AUXILIARY VERB OF PERFECT TENSE

I HAVE worked vey hard to achieve this goal. 

( Present Perfect )

She HAD galloped all her pani puri before I saw her.
