Have/have got to express ownership: which is more common?
- have got
To express the concept of ownership or possession, which form do you feel is more common where you’re from?
It would be great if you could post to say where you’re originally from, or which variety of English you speak e.g. British, American or any other kind.
Personally, I don’t particularly like “have got”. I think it’s inelegant. But that’s not what this poll is about. Feel free to talk about that kind of thing if you like, but I’d appreciate it if you could also let me know which option you think is more commonly used.
Thanks in advance!
