    Re: causative

    Hi !!!
    I'm not a teacher, I just want to make a suggestion
    get sth done: to cause sth to happen or be done
    Ex:
    I must get my hair cut.
    I’ll never get all this work finished.
    have sth done
    1 (used with a past participle) have sth done to suffer the effects of what sb else does to you
    Ex:She had her bag stolen.
    2 (used with a past participle) have sth done to cause sth to be done for you by sb else
    Ex:
    You’ve had your hair cut!
    We’re having our car repaired.
    3. to tell or arrange for sb to do sth for you
    Ex:
    [vn inf] He had the bouncers throw them out of the club.
    (informal) I’ll have you know (= I’m telling you) I’m a black belt in judo.
    [vn + adv. / prep.] She’s always having the builders in to do something or other
