About the Spanish Verb HABER.
Miles, Cecil
Canadian Modern Language Review, v46 n2 p317-23 Jan 1990
The Spanish verb "haber" presents unresolved puzzles concerning its meaning and derivations. Apart from its familiar and recent function as auxiliary in the perfect tenses, the verb's underlying meaning "to have, to hold" persists in the impersonal "hay" while other morphemes previously associated with "haber" may prove unrelated.
