    Re: to have

    This is a common past infinitive which also exists in a similar pattern in most Indian languages. Note: you should not capitalize To have in the middle of a sentence. (I know, it's Microsoft Word's fault).

    Re: to have

    And always keep in mind that have is two words. One is a verb meaning possess. The other is a building block for participles. That's why you'll see have had and had had. It's not redundant, it's two different words.

    I think you'll find that all your examples are one or the other. The trick is learning to recognize which is which.

    (It also appears in many idioms. For instance, "I've had it!" means "I've had enough, I'm tired of this, I'm fed up, no more, enough!")
