Please give a complete sentence as context. For example: If you have something happen , like a car breaking down, you'll need a savings in order to help you i n these unfortunate circumstances.

Why not "happened"? Thanks for the context. This is not a past tense construction. I'm not sure I know the name of it. It's similar to: If you have someone call you in the middle of the night, it gives you a scare. If you have a rash appear anywhere on your body after using this product, discontinue use and see a doctor.

It reminds me of an explanation of the difference between Spanish and English when missing a flight. We say: "I missed my plane" and in Spanish it's said, "The plane left me.

I think I understand I probably mixed up with expressions like: "I have my car crashed". Whoa, hold on a minute, Gary. I don't think we'd say "I have my car crashed". We would say "I have my car repaired [at the garage]" and "I have my hair cut [at the hairdresser's]". Is that the construction you were thinking of? It is confusing.

Loob's examples are excellent for another use of "have". We use it a third way as well: Have her call me. Have him mow the lawn before he leaves for his friend's house. Have her show you the new marketing plan.

In this case it means "make sure that". Make sure that she calls me. Make sure that he mows the lawn Make sure that she shows you Loob said:. Hi again, continuing with this thread I have to rephrase this sentence using "HAD": By the way, - by using - is also correct? Their flat has been broken into twice this year.

My guess: They have had their flat broken why not "break"? I'm confused :- Thank you!! The verbal is either a bare infinitive infinitive without "to" , a present participle -ing form , or a past participle. Each sentence of this form is roughly equivalent to an underlying sentence in which the subject appears, but not as the subject, and the direct object of "to have" appears as the subject of a verb that takes the indicated tense, voice, aspect, etc.

When the verbal is a bare infinitive, it becomes the main verb in the underlying sentence: You have pres. You ha d something happen to you. You will have something happen to you. You have ha d pres.

He ha s someone give him something. They have pres. They have ha d pres. They keep hav ing pres. When the verbal is a present participle, the verb "to be" is implied, forming a progressive tense: You have pres.

You have pres. You ha d past tense some people break ing in to your flat. When the verbal is a past participle, passive voice is implied, keeping the past participle and using "to be" or sometimes "to get" as the conjugated verb: You have pres. You are having pres. If you have pres.

I hope this helps. I just ran into this stand-alone multiple question: Answer is A. By reading Forero's detailed explanation I think the option B also works meaning changes of course.

Am I correct on this? Dimcl said:. I will dispute strongly that the answer is "A", Kenny. It can only be "B". I have my bedroom looking tidy and clean. Thank you very much for your kind reply, Forero. The text-maker and I need to better our inderstanding of this have issue.

One of the best explanations I've ever seen in this forum. Thank you so much!!! Very useful. Prower Banned Russian. Forero said:. The verbal is either a bare infinitive infinitive without "to".

Myridon Senior Member Texas. VicNicSor Banned Russia. Last edited: Dec 22, The last three sentence are fine. They report what something did that affected you badly. I am not certain of the intended meaning of the first sentence: I have flowers bloom in my garden every year. Cagey said:. No, it's not the verb that makes this seem odd to me. Why don't you say "Flowers bloom in my garden every year"?

What is the meaning you want to add by saying "I have flowers bloom It's not clear to me what meaning you are giving to 'have'. VicNicSor said:. What about this: "I'm having my lily bloom in the middle of winter! I couldn't use your sentence to express that idea, Vic. How would you express the idea using this "have something happen" pattern, please?

Interesting question, Vic. I would happily say "I've had lilies bloom in the middle of winter". But I think it would require a fairly specific context to say "I'm having lilies bloom in the middle of winter". I can only imagine this as a response to something like "What strange things are you experiencing at the moment? Something bad happened to me. It could also - against logic - mean that I deliberately asked someone to steal my wallet. Something good happened to me.

It could also - against logic - mean that I got my roses to win first prize, perhaps by asking them nicely. I've been the recipient of some service that I myself requested. I got someone to do some service for me.

British something for saying that something is happen by something else. When the verbal is a bare infinitive, it becomes the main verb in the underlying sentence: You have pres. I've been the recipient of some service that I myself requested. You deliberately had someone break in?
