Verb to have (P4)
We normally use HAVE
as a main verb
with an object
to talk about common actions.
- Have a shower, have breakfast, have a headache, have a cold.
The present perfect tense
is used when we connect the present with recent past in some way and it will look like this:
Have they had their medicine yet? Yes, they’ve had their medicine.
in the past perfect form. You use the past perfect when you are talking about the past and want to refer back to an earlier past time.
By the time he’d finished work he’d had four coffees.
Past perfect forms
are a feature of if-clauses
in the third type of conditional sentence when we are explaining past actions or regretting past inaction.
If I had had more time, I would have finished the project on time.
