Unit 17. Have and have got
(использование have и have got)

Have and have got (= possess, own etc.)
We often use have got rather than have alone. So you can say: We use have got or have for illnesses, pains etc.: In questions and negative sentences there are three possible forms:
Have you got any money?
Do you have any money?
Have you any money? (less usual)
Has she got a car?
Does she have a car?
Has she a car? (less usual)
I haven't got any money.
I don't have any money.
I haven't any money. (less usual)
She hasn't got a car.
She doesn't have a car.
She hasn't a car. (less usual)

When have means 'possess' etc., you cannot use continuous forms (is having / are having etc.): For the past we use had (usually without got): In past questions and negative sentences we normally use did/ didn't: Have breakfast / have a bath / have a good time etc.
Have (but not have got) is also used for many actions and experiences. For example:
have another bricket breakfast / dinner / a cup of coffee / a cigarette etc.
a bath / a shower / a swim / a rest / a party / a holiday / a nice time etc.
an accident / an experience / a dream etc.
a look (at something) / a chat (with somebody)
a baby (= give birth to a baby)
difficulty / trouble / fun
Have got is not possible in these expressions. Compare: In these expressions, have is like other verbs. You can use continuous forms (is having / are having etc.) where suitable: In questions and negative sentences we normally use do/ does/ did: See Appendix 7. American English (американский диалект).
