    finished/has finished

    I finished my lecture.
    I have/has finished my lecture.

    1. What is the difference in meaning between these sentences?
    2. Is it acceptable to say I has or I have?

    your participation is highly appreciated.

    Re: finished/has finished

    You can say both
    I have finished/ I finished my lecture.
    You cannot say I has finished (subject is first person singular and verb is third person singular)
    There's a difference in terms of context:

    I have (just) finished my lecture (recent past event).
    I finished my lecture (completed past event one minute/three minutes/half an hour/an hour/ a day ago).
    Hope it's clear.
