I was taught that ‘have got’ means 'possess, own, or hold' and you can also use ‘have’
I have got a car./I have a car
I haven't got a car./I don't have a car
Have I got a car?/Do I have a car?
For the rest of tenses it must be used ‘have’ [Past Simple]
I had a car.
I didn't have a car.
Did I have a car?
I have had a car.
I haven't had a car
Have I had a car?
When I started learning the simple past and present perfect. I knew a lot. I heard a song called ‘I got a car’ by George Strait. I recognize that 'got' is past simple.
I get a car
I got a car
If I make it in Present Perfect. It will be... [Present Perfect]
I have GOT a car (I tried to give emphasis in GOT)
Now my confusion is. How can I talk about getting something that is intended, requested, or desired (the verb get) in present perfect? If ‘have got’ is reserved for possession, belonging or inclusion, with the direct object.
I have got a car. (In thr context of possesion, belonging or inclusion)
I have got a car. (Present Perfect of 'I get a car')
-- English isn't my first language. (I'm sorry if you see a mistake) I asked that in another forum and I didn't get it.
