"I haven't the time": This is something that my French students always say. is it grammatically correct? Being North American, I'm used to saying "I don't have time" or even "I haven't got the time," but "I haven't the time"? Is that acceptable? Maybe it's a stupid question, but I honestly am not sure.
Thanks for your help!
Welcome to the forums.
It is a common form for elided "I have not [got] the time". It certainly is frequently heard here.
