    "You've got" oder " you got" ?


    "You've got" oder " you got" ?

    Hallo zusammen,

    kann mir jemand sagen, wann man "you've got" oder " you got" schreibt? Beispiel: You('ve) got no idea about...
    Eine Sache die zurzeit noch immer so ist. (Falls das relevant ist?)
    Vielen Dank!

    "You've got" is correct, but the 've is often dropped in spoken English.

    Das mit dem "have" is so 'ne Sache. Im Deutschen ist es üblich z.B. "Ich habe gewonnen" zu sagen, während es im Englischen eher umgekehrt ist. "I have won" funktioniert zwar, klingt aber genau wie "Ich gewann" eher merkwürdig. An deiner Stelle würde ich "have" nicht so oft verwenden und stattdessen auf die einfache Vergangenheitform der Verben zugreifen.

    Ich habe das nicht getan.
    I haven't done that. <- schräg<br/>I didn't do that. <- besser

    I've got means "Ich habe" : I've got a dog = Ich habe einen Hund. It's not present perfect, so your comment doesn't quite fit, and also there are rather clear rules when to use which tense. "I have won" is not merkwürdig at all, it just depends on the context.

    Gibson is right. When writing, "you've got" (or even "you have got") is preferred. In spoken American English many people say simply "you got".
    If I'm not mistaken, this is also a BE/AE difference, but I'm not up on it enough to say. There are some versions of English that prefer simple "I have" in place of "I have got".

    You've got no idea. = You have no idea.

    simply put:

    I've got a dog = Ich habe einen Hund (this may be a dog that's been in your backyard for a long time)
    I got a dog = Ich habe einen Hund bekommen (this may be a dog you just got for Christmas or your birthday)

    Hey, dude and Carly. What about that Glenn Miller standard, "I got a gal in Kalamazoo". He's not saying, I don't think, that a girl was given to him as a present in Kalamazoo. He means "I have got a gal in Kalamazoo = I have a girl in Kalamazoo", but that's not what he sings. It's "I got." Don't you think the 've get's dropped in colloquial speech?

    What did you get?
    I got a B on that paper. or I received a B on that paper.

    What do you have, a car or a motorcycle?
    Oh, I've got a car, but grifter's got a motorcycle. or I have a car, but grifter has a motorcycle.

    Are you married?
    No, but I got a gal in Kalamazoo.

    Add Gibson's first answer to dude's answer and you('ve) got all you need to know. I think this dropping of the "'ve" in spoken English could be an American thing. Glenn Miller was just singing like many Americans speak: instead of saying "I've got", he said, "I got".

    Lots of songs use the "I got" form because it works well with the rhythm.

    I got music, I got rhythm, I got my gal, who could ask for anything more?

    Ain't got nobody

    And I think lots of native speakers in the US also often leave it off when talking, but would always write it.
