Causative grammar 3
In these sentences, the person does not directly perform the action but asks someone to do it for him. In this section, we will examine that this grammar has two forms. The first form is Passive and the second form is Active.
Today we are going to examine the latter form of this grammar. In this case, we state the name of the person who does the task for us. Join us to explore causative grammar 3 with Professor Farsad and learn new tips about this widely used grammar.
First, watch this video:
We talked about causative grammar in this episode, video 3. We said:
- Use the two verbs “Get” and “Have”
- Bring the work or something someone does for us
- Omit the agent (it might not be that necessary to be mentioned)
- Use the third form of the verb (P.P).
- I got the hairdresser to cut my hair. (active)
- I got (omit the agent) my hair (the work) cut (P.P). (passive)
- I got him to wash my car.
- I got (omit the agent) my car (the work) washed (P.P).
- I got them to clean my house (causative active).
- I got my house cleaned. (causative passive)
In the active voice, we say the name of the person assigned to do the job.
I got Ali to cut my hair.
I got Micheal to wash my car.
I got my hairdresser to curl my hair.
When using “Get” according to this English grammar, you must bring “To” after the agent who does the work.
I got Michel to clean my house
