Have/have got to say that something is mine + - I don’t have a house with a garden I haven’t got a house with a garden ? Do you have a house with a garden? Have you got a house with a garden? I have a nice house with a garden I ’ve got a nice house with a garden
Forms: + - Subject + have / have got + object ? Do/Does + subject + have + object? Subject + don’t/doesn’t have + object Subject + haven’t got + object Have/Has + subject + got + object?
Some examples: I have a new car or I’ve got a new car Sue has got long hair or Sue has long hair Do they have any children? NOT: Have they any children? Tim doesn’t have a job or Tim hasn’t got a job NOT: Tim hasn’t a job - IT’S WRONG!!! How much time have you got? Or How much time do you have? My parents have a holiday flat on the French Riviera or My parents have got a holiday flat on the French Riviera
