The meaning of the expression "Have X, will travel" is explained quite well here. However, I was wondering how to analyse this expression grammatically. It's certainly an abbreviated form, and a few ideas come to my mind, but I'm not sure which one, if any, is correct:
- Not grammatically correct - since it's a tongue-in-cheek expression it might not be strictly correct
- [I] have X, [and] will travel [if it gets me a job involving X]
- [I] have X, [and I am] will[ing] to travel [if it gets me a job involving X]
Bonus question: do expressions following a similar template get used in real life or is this just a literary construct?
