The Three Different Words Spelled H-A-V-E. AVKO "Great Idea" Reprint Series No. 624.
McCabe, Don
This booklet discusses a homograph that is seemingly never taught in schools--the homograph "have." The booklet begins with a discussion of three definitions of "have" and notes the distinctly different pronunciations ("hav,""uv," and "haff") of each form. The booklet then discusses why each form should be pronounced differently, and presents the story of "Papa Have,""Mama Have," and "Baby Have" to further illustrate the differences. The booklet concludes with sample dictation exercises on the three "haves." (RS)
