The informal expression ‘what have you’ means “things like that”. We can use and/or before this expression: The seas and the winds and water and what have you have made the rocks into the beautiful sight that they are today.Sep 15, 2016
You say what have you at the end of a list in order to refer generally to other things of the same kind.
“What not” meaning “other undefined stuff” is two words. “When the display shows values — speed, temperature, torque and what not — does it show the maximum values?” “What have you” could be used in the same way in that sentence. “And so on” implies more strongly that there are in fact more items in the list.
Part of the problem is that “I had you” has so many meanings in English: – I tricked you. – You were in love with me (but you’re not in love with me now) – I owned you (not used today; we don’t own slaves any more) – I caught you (said by a police officer before the criminal escaped)
It’s slang/informal speech. It’s short for “What have you got?” or “What do you have?” In text, it can also be written “Whatcha got?” or “Whatchu got?”
Have you is used in interrogative sentences. So, is did you. Have you is usually used in the second person. So is the case with did you.
Have you ever…? Have you ever…? Ever means from the time you were born until now. Except for rare exceptions, it can only be used in questions and to answers with a no. It is used with have or had + a past participle.
There, their, and they’re are the big trio of commonly confused words. All three of them are pronounced the same, and the spelling differences don’t seem to do a good job of stopping people from mixing them up.
“Had” is not the appropriate tense to use in this case: you must use “have“. The grammatically correct form of your sentence would be “Did you already have the opportunity to do something?”
“Have you” is in the present perfect which is about an event in the past relative to the present moment. For instance, these people you are seeing now: “Have you seen them before?” “Had you” is in the past perfect tense which is about an event in the past relative to another event in the past.
The link that you have given is describing past perfect continuous. Therefore, the usage of “had” is correct. If you use “have” then you will change the tense to present perfect continuous.
The most common form of the question, in both British and American dialects is “Do you have...” Using “Have you” is a non-typical use. It sounds old fashioned.
In the US “have you got” is more informal, (sometimes we omit the “have” in informal speech) and “do you have” is more the formal standard. Both are used equally in different situations. From what I understand, it is more or less the opposite in the UK, where “have you got” would be the standard.
Both are grammatically correct and both are suitable formats for the question. There is NO difference in meaning between the two words in this particular context; ‘watched’ does NOT connote that you paid more attention to the movie than ‘seen’ does.
But it would be more likely for the question to be “Have you done your homework?”, to which the answer is “Yes, I have done it” (or in speech, nearly always “Yes, I’ve done it”). The difference is that “Did you do your homework?” is asking about the past —— did you, at some time in the past, do your homework?
You say what have you at the end of a list in order to refer generally to other things of the same kind. [vagueness] So many things are unsafe these days–milk, cranberry sauce, what have you. My great-grandfather made horseshoes and nails and what have you. See full dictionary entry for what.

“Have you seen” implies that the person saw your glasses sometime in the recent past right up to the present moment. “Did you see” is asking if the person has ever seen your glasses, at any time in the past.
While the verb to have has many different meanings, its primary meaning is “to possess, own, hold for use, or contain.” Have and has indicate possession in the present tense (describing events that are currently happening). Have is used with the pronouns I, you, we, and they, while has is used with he, she, and it.
‘Has/have’ are the present tense verbs. ‘Has’ is used with a singular subject and ‘have’ is used with a plural subject.
The short answer when comparing has vs. have is that has is used with the third person singular. Have is used with the first and second person singular and plural and the third person plural.
There is the choice when talking about places, whether figurative or literal. They’re has an apostrophe, which means it’s the product of two words: they are.

Is “there’re” a legitimate contraction for “there are”? Strictly speaking, on a grammatical level, it is correct. “There’re” is a legitimate contraction of “there are.” However, just because the rules say something is correct doesn’t mean you can actually use it.
If it makes sense, then you’re would be right. If not, then your would fit. You could also replace your with my in the sentence. If it fits, then use your.
3 Answers. 1) “Have you had lunch?” is preferred. The phrasing suggests that you’re asking something about how the person currently is, specifically whether he is hungry. If you were asking about events from a week ago, then “did you have your lunch?” would be equally as good as “had you eaten/had your lunch?”
Have you had your dinner? would be appropriate for someone asking if the other has already eaten and so dinner doesn’t need to be prepared.
You should reply, “Yes, have you had yours yet?”/”Yes, have you had lunch yet?“
contraction of you had:Sorry we missed you—you’d already left by the time we arrived. contraction of you would:You’d be foolish to pass up such an offer.
