Causative Verbs: Make, Have, Get

BY almio harjanto ON May31, 2017 
In IELTS writing, the very essential evaluation of your essay is grammatical range. We have to be aware that even a very simple grammar aspect is taken into account. The example of it is Causative Verbs.
Often times wewant to describe someone, or something makes us do something, or helps us to do it. In this case we need to use causative verbs. While it might seem like a daunting word, causative verbs are actually really easy to use.
a)      I made my brother carry my suitcase.
b)      I had my brother carry my suitcase.
c)       I got my brother to carry my suitcase.
Make, have and get express the idea that “X” causes “Y” to do something. When they are used as causative verbs, their meanings are similar but not identical.
In a): My brother had no choice. I insisted that he carry my suitcase.
In b): My brother carried my suitcase because I asked him to.
In c): I managed to persuade my brother to carry my suitcase.

e)      Sad movies make me cry.
