●問：《中級英語語法訓練》 中有一道題：-I thought you had planned to practise playing the violin yesterday.
-Mother had me ____the housework all day.
A. doing B do C. did D. to do
我見有all day,填了doing; 書中答案卻是do.為什么是do而不是doing呢？
☆答：動詞 have+賓語+ (不帶 to) do 或+doing都很常見.have+ 在這里是cause (somebody) to (do something)的意思。 例如：
I had John find me a house.
I had them all laughing at my jokes.
have用在否定句時有“允許” 、 “容忍” 的意思。 例如：
We can't have you going everywhere by taxi./She won't have boys arriving late.
在你問及繁榮句子里填doing 看來并沒有錯。事實上Geoffery Leech在(An A～Z of English Grammer & Usage)一書中，在舉出下例后注明<especially U.S.>:You really ought to have the doctor take a look at that eye
