Learning the use of causative verb ‘Get’
In today’s video we will learn about one more causative verb i.e., get. Earlier we have made a video on explaining the use of ‘make’ which is also a causative verb.
We are studying about ‘get’ today because it is more important.
Causative Verb– it is a verb used to indicate a thing or person that makes something happen.
Keep a note that with this, we always use the third form of the verb.
Also take note of the word ‘beat’ the first and second form of which is ‘beat’ whereas the third form is ‘beaten’.
Beat means to hit someone
Here we have two subjects, one who is getting the action done and the other who is actually doing the action and then there is an object on which the action is performed.
