    Does have/has a auxiliary verb?

    1. I see that HAVE' is used with the Past Participle to form the Perfect Aspect. I wonder to know that is "have/has" a auxiliary verb?

    2. What is the difference of using big and large. "I am from a big/large family. I see we can use both, but does it make any difference? Also is there a situation where we can use big instead of large, and vice versa?

    Thanks in advance.

    Example:
    1. The blue house is big.

    2. They have a large yard.

    3. This cloth is for large size person.

    4. The bowl is not big enough.

    5. I have big brown eyes.

    ==========================

    1. Has anyone been to the hospital recently?

    2. Has anyone heard of ......

    3. Has anyone taken folic acid?

    4. Anyone has one eye bigger than the other?

    The choice of big or large is pretty much a matter of personal preference, though big tends to be used more often. Sometimes, however, large tends to be preferred.

    (Say: "Does anyone have one eye bigger than the other?")

    :)

    In answer to your first question, "have/has" is an auxilary verb in present perfect constructions.

    I also agree that big and large are usually interchangeable. :wink:
