    The Meaning of the Verb Have and Its Complement in the Have + Object + Past Participle Construction


    The have + object + past participle construction has usually been interpreted either as causative or experiential and in either case the verb have appears to have two distinctive meanings namely the agentive causative meaning in the former and the stative meaning in the latter. Taking into account the meanings of the past participle and the kinds of the event described in the complement we however find that it is the different meanings of the past participles that give the main verb have different meanings. This leads us to assume that have is always the stative verb designating possession and the prototypical meaning of the construction is such that the subject possesses" the event described in the complement in some way. This explanation

    focused on what have means and i ts relation to the elements which follow i t also appl ies to the have + object construction.
