    "you ever read" & "have you ever read"

    Hi everyone!

    May I know whether these two sentences have the same meaning?

    1) You ever read the book?
    2) Have you ever read the book?

    Thank you.

    Re: "you ever read" & "have you ever read"

    Sentence 1) is simply a lazy, ungrammatical version of sentence 2).
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Antonia, please note that there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you". It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful. It saves everybody's time.
