Hi. How are you?
You can remember we talked about causative grammar.
For example, by using “Have and Get”, you can use this causative grammar form. Many learners have asked why we call it “Causative”. Why causative grammar? The reason why this grammatical structure is called causative is someone, the causative, does something for you because you instruct or ask them to do so. In other words, you leave the work to them to do it. We also talked about “Have and Get” and said that there are two forms. The first form is Passive or unknown causative agent, which means the name of the person to whom the work is assigned is unknown.
But there are other methods that have a causative state made with the verbs “Make and Let”. Grammar of these verbs:
When you let someone to do something, you are telling him/ her to do something. Here you aren’t the agent, but the agent is whom you have allowed to do the work.
He let his brother use his laptop computer.
The agent who uses the laptop computer is his brother not him.
This verb has two different meanings. The first meaning is to make when you talk about objects or a place that is being made. My father built a house where we could live in. Note that this grammar is not causative because it means making, and then an object comes next. But if we use a human instead of a non-living thing, saying, “I made you speak English”, or “I made you do your homework” meant ‘I forced you to speak English’, or I forced you to do your homework’, we have used a causative grammar.
My mother made me wash the dishes, meant ‘My mother forced me to wash the dishes’.
I hope you enjoyed watching this video. Don’t forget to write down the points made in your grammar notebook and try to use them in sentences to better learn the terms and words, as well as try to use this grammar in your daily conversations.
