Yesterday, I posted a question (in an another website) asking how the Causative Verb Have works. What I posted was like:
I had my dog lick my hand
And I got a good answer explaining that that the subject initiated the action and the object obliged. But still, I couldn't grasp the idea. Whenever I see examples like as follows:
Do you know what it's like to have a gun held to your head?
I can't possibly consider that as the subject let the criminal point the gun at him.
