    have got = repetition

    Hi,

    *self-made*

    - Have you (got) a meeting every Monday?

    I would like to ask whether or not we can use 'have (got)' when there is a repetition.

    Thank you!

    It's OK here.

    I'm not saying it would be right in every possible scenario.

    Re: have got = repetition

    "Have you a meeting every Monday?" is grammatically correct but sounds dated.

    "Have you got a meeting every Monday?" and "Do you have a meeting every Monday?" are grammatically correct and sound more up-to-date.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
