    "Have to" question

    I read something really weird recently, with (I think) the verb have to

    "What have they to say now?"

    Is it a expression or something like that?

    because I would have written

    "What do they have to say now?"

    Please help me

    Re: "Have to" question

    Both are correct.

    "What have they to say now?" is more formal and rather 'old-fashioned'.

    "What do they have to say now?" is informal and is the best for most occasions.


    (Good question, btw)
