I am struggling to understand the meaning of the following sentence:

What time do we got to do this at?

I assume "do we got" means "do we have got". I guess they are asking at what time it has to be completed or how much time have they left. Is that so?

"Got" or "have" should be avoided in this case because there is no "getting" involved. "Must" is better.

What time must we do this at?

However, the use of "at" at the end of a sentence like this is nonstandard. Thus,

What time must we do this?

or

At what time must we do this?

"What time do we got to do this at?" is a colloquial way of saying "What time do we have to do this at?"

So they are asking at what time something must be done.

It's probably used in say a school/college situation where student will have been talking about a class, and it's used instead of saying "At what time does that class take place?"

  • Also, "At what time does that class take place?" is used instead of saying "When does that class take place?", which is used instead of saying "When is that class?". – James Waldby - jwpat7 Mar 9 '12 at 14:58
