What have you got...

I saw something like that: "What have you got in the bag?".

Get is the present tense form of the verb. Got is the past tense form as well as one of the two alternatives for the past participle. The other alternative for the past participle is gotten, which is generally preferred in the United States.

In informal contexts, many speakers use have got, 've got, or simply got to mean "have" or "must", but when to use "have got"?On which context?


"We've got to find a solution to our problems" and "We have to find a solution to our problems" wold have the same meaning?

Hello GAM,

yeah,they´ve got the same meaning!
Ex:I have to work out=I´ve got to work out.(Tenho que fazer exercício físico,malhar.)
Ex:She has to get up the courage=She´s got to get up the courage.(Ela tem que arrumar coragem.)
Ex:We have experience=We´ve got experience.(Temos experiência.)


God be with you!
