Dear Alan,

Many thanks for the poetic definition of the different meanings of the word HAVE - that can be a subtle word hide their light under a bushel, which means they don't show people how capable and talented they are. and good at lot of things.

1.Superlatives
2. which is the longest word in English?
ANTI-/DIS/ESTABLISHMENT/ARIAN/ISM=antidisestablishmentarianism’
How can be make a so long word? With prefixes and suffixes.
ANTI-(PREFIX)=OPPOSITE TO;AGAINST =Anti-tank weapons/antisocial
……..=OPPOSITE OF =ANTI-HERO/ANTIFREEZE
-DIS (PREFIX) =NOT, THE OPPOSITE OF,
ESTABLISH(v)+ment =establishment=the word that describes the way the country is governed.
-MENT = SUFFIX(IN NOUNS)THE ACTION AND RESULT OF STH
-ARIAN(suffix)=MAKES INTO PERSON BELIEVING IN ; PRACTISING
-ISM(suffix)=ism’ is an ending used for beliefs and philosophies such as communism, capitalism fascism, absurdism, baptism, Buddhism, egoism, expressionism, impressionism, cubism, conformism, fatalism etc

Forms: HAVE - HAS -HAD - HAVING

1.in the area of necessity and control
necessity: MUST and HAVE TO
mustis me telling myself for exp. to get up early
have to=someone telling me for exp. to get up early
TENSE[/b):present perfect tense + every PERFECT tenses
[b]CAUSATIVE VERBS
: I have somebody cut my hair.
Did you have your hair cut? I don't have my hair cut.
IDIOMATIC EXPRESSIONS:
1. Have it out with someone’ =is when you have a long discussion with someone because you want to settle (find the answer to) a problem.
2. in the area of necessity and control.= is when you have a long discussion with someone because you want to settle (find the answer to) a problem.
3. My car has had it, this means it’s not working any more and it’s now useless.
4. You ‘have someone on’ =when you play a trick on them
5. has it in for’ me. She always tries to find mistakes in everything
6. Have it in you’ =suggests you have the ability to do something (you can do it).
7. I didn’t know he had it in him =(was able to do this)
8. REQUEST: Give me the gun
ANSWER: ‘Let him have it’
It has 2 meanings
1. to attack (in this case ‘shoot ’) him
2. it could also mean: Give it (the gun) to him (and don't us it!)
The one misunderstood and shot with the gun that's why he had been hung.

Best regards:
Kati Svaby

Dear Alan,
Would you please explain to me why have you used (in part one of have) merely and only together in this sentence and what does it mean?
Today of course the king or queen is merely the head in name only and has no power.

Hello Mitra,

I think the key of your question is the idiom: in name only;(= and not reality )= (=officially recognized but not existing really;) its synonym can be nominally

So if I try to explain Alan's sentence I would say:
Today of course the king or queen is merely the head in name only and has no power.
He used the merely whereas he could have used only he should have repeated the word 'only 'twice .

I think his sentence means the same if I would say:
Today of course the king or queen is only the head and has nominally no power.

Bye.

Dear Alan,

Answer the last letter arrived one week ago. I repeat the newsletters.

In the first part You showed us the helping verb ‘have’ as a workhorse which works very hard and appears in many different guises. It is the mainstay of the perfect tenses in a form: have, had, having

In the second part you spoke about that we can express the necessity in two kinds of way with have to and must. What is the difference between the two? ‘Must’ is me telling myself to get up early and when I say I have to get up early somebody or something asks me get up early.

‘Have’ is used in causative mode when I don’t do something I have somebody do it. When I go to hairdresser to have my hair cut or when the lawn is to high I have somebody cut my lawn. When my neighbour asks me : Did you cut the lawn. No, I have it cut by a man.

How could become the helping verb a noun? We can say instead of the reach haves and instead of the poor have-nots.
So when we say that because of the slump more and more people slide down from haves among have-nots.

Of course there is lot of idioms with ‘have’
1.‘Have it out with someone’ = We have this misunderstanding out with each other.
1/a Have done with sb =to finish sth unpleasant so that it does not continue
-Let’s have done with this silly argument.
2. have had it
a.)My car has had it= My car can be repaired.
b.) I ‘ve had it . I go to bed = I am extremely tired
c.) When the truck smashed into me, I thought, I’d had it. = I thought I lost all chance of surviving it.
d.)Dad saw the scratch the car – you’ve had it now. =he'll tell you off
e.)I’ve had it up (to here ) with it – you’re done it once to often. = I am unable to accept the situation any longer.
3. You ‘have someone on’ = Play a trick on sb. He has always me on.
- I’m just having you on.- we can say on the first April.
4 I know that the manager ‘has it in on for’ me. = to not like sb and to be unpleasant with him/her/them
I was working without break but my manager had it in for me.
5. ‘Have it in you’ = to be capable to do it, I can do it.
-Everyone thinks I have it in me to learn English but it isn't true.
-You were great. I didn’t know you had it in you.
-You spoke very well in the meeting. I never knew you had it in you.
6.‘Let him have it’ = has two meaning: 1. Give it to him 2.Attack him ( and if he has a revolver can mean shoot him.)
7.I ‘ve had it . I go to bed.= I am extremely tired.
8. have it that = to claim that is fact that
-Rumour has it that will have a new manager soon.
9.not having any =not willing to listen to or believing sth
I tried persuade him to look for a job but he wasn’t having any.
10.have sth on sb =to know sth bad about sb.
I’m not worried-he’s got nothing on me.

Kati Svaby

Dear Alan,
I read with pleasure as often as I can the same newsletters from you, but I would like to know that for quite a time why have I been receiving the same letters that I had already received. Yesterday I answered the newsletter ‘have 2’ for the second time. I mentioned only the last paragraph of the newsletter” have 1” what I had answered earlier.Upon that I received again the” have 1” . I don’t know why? In my last letter I mentioned the first paragraph of the “have 1” but I thought unnecessary to speak about, the antidisestablishmentarianism because in one of my previous letter http://www.english-test.net/forum/ftopic76345-30.html /#38 permalink / I analyzed how anti-dis-establish-ment-arian-ism had been produced.
Anti- prefix
Dis-prefix
Establish-verb
-ment-affix which makes a noun from a verb
-arian-affix which makes a inanimate noun a person
-ism-suffix makes an abstract noun
In Hungarian the most long word elkáposztástalanítottátok = this is a verb which means that there was a pot full of cabbage and the guests ate everything and the hostess says “you made this pot empty, you ate the whole cabbage.” “This pot is without cabbage.” all these are in this single word.
El-káposzta-s-talan-ít +ottátok = prefix + noun+ affix(makes an adjective from a noun) +privative suffix + causative suffix +personal suffix (plural 3.person)

In the second paragraph You spoke about how have appears in perfect times.

PRESENT PEFECT SIMPLE TENSE
Have you seen Tom this morning?

PRESENT PERFECT CONTINUOUS TENSE
I have been painting the walls that’s why everything is covered in paint.

PAST PERFECT SIMPLE TENSE
By the time I arrived home somebody had eaten all the chocolate.

PAST PERFECT CONTNUOUS TENSE
I had been painting the walls that’s why everything was covered in paint.

FUTURE PERFECT SIMPLE
By this time tomorrow I’ll have read all these books!

FUTURE PERFECT CONTINUOUS TIME
By the end of this month we will have been living in that house for 45 years.

Regards:
Kati Svaby
