Transcript of PASSIVE CAUSATIVE
CAUSATIVE VERBS in P.C.
You should have your hair cut
What is Passive Causative?
Yesterday, my T.V. broke down, so I had it repaired.
Why do you think it is called Passive Causative?
When the subject is not really doing the action, but receiving it.
You are causing the action.
It is used to speak about services arranged - situations in which the action affects a person or an object that has been performed by a third person.
I HAD / GOT MY CAR WASHED
Is there any difference between "get" and "have"?
Sometimes "get something done" is interchangeable with "have something done", but these expressions
mean exactly the same thing.
GET vs. HAVE
- "Have" is more formal than "get".
- “Get” lets you know that the action did happen, while with “have” it is not that certain.
- “Have” - You ask someone to do something.
I had my blood pressure taken.
- “Get” - You convinced someone to do something.
I got my blood pressure taken.
- Get can be used to give orders. Get your her cut!
