Help with questions Hi, there Could you help me? 1) Let us say you are measuring a table and you ask someone measuring one side of the table "What have you got/What do you got?" .. could the person say: "I have 20" or "I have 20 inches"? Does it sound odd?.."I have X inches"? And should I say "what do you got" or "what have you got"? 2) Does it sound odd to use "Having" in this sentence: "I always dreamed(or I've always dreamt???) of telling you something and HAVING you actually pay attention to me." ? Thank you very much

1. You could say: "What do you have?" or "What have you got?" If the type of measurement is implied, then you can say, "I have 20" or you could specify, "I have 4 feet, 6 inches" for clarity. It does not sound odd. 2. In the US, we tend to use "dreamed", and both versions would be fine, although the meaning could be slightly different. The use of "having" is fine.
