Student or Learner
could you plz explain me the correct use of "HAVING" ?
I read that it is used for eating something but then I came across my sentences with 'having' like
I'm sorry you can't come in at the moment because we are having the house decorated right now
also, why have we used because and not ........as we are having the house decorated right now
thanks a lot
Your sentence reads that a person has arranged somebody to do some decorating in the house. I repeat - it's got nothing to do with possession, hence you can use all forms of have in this case. And one more thing - this causative have could never be replaced by have got.
