RnR Grammar

In today’s episode, Harry said “I’ve got a new stance for pooing”, but what’s the difference between “I have a new stance for pooing”?

This is a question I had recently on a RnR English Family episode, and it’s very interesting, as many people don’t know the difference!

Well, in the positive, it’s the same! Both examples given above are correct and are the same.

But what about the negative? “I haven’t got a new stance” is ok, but what about “I have not a new stance”?

The answer is that the second one (I haven’t a new stance) is INCORRECT! As in this sentence, the verb ‘have’ is a normal verb, so we need an auxiliary verb to make it negative. At the moment, it’s like saying “I play not rugby”, to make an affirmative sentence negative, we need the auxiliary verb ‘do’, so just like we say “I don’t play tennis”, we would say “I don’t have a new stance”.

And if you’re wondering why “I haven’t got a new stance” is correct, it’s because the verb ‘have’ is an AUXILIARY verb in this sentence, so that’s why we need ‘got’, as auxiliary verbs need to be followed by another verb in a sentence!

Now that is some SERIOUS RnR Grammar!
