When do I use had have had has had had

  • English -

    Any verb using "have" or "has" as its auxiliary verb is in the present perfect tense.
    has walked
    have walked
    has taught
    have taught
    has gone
    have gone

    Any verb using "had" as its auxiliary verb is in the past perfect tense.
    had walked
    had taught
    had gone

    The same can be said for the verb "to have" --

    She has had two sandwiches for lunch each day this week.

    They have had this television service for two years.

    If he had had a sandwich for lunch, he wouldn't be hungry now.

  • English - = present perfect = past perfect
