verb had had (hăd), hav·ing, has (hăz) verb, transitive
Origin: Middle English haven
Origin: , from Old English habban; see kap- in Indo-European roots. Usage Note: The idioms had better and had best resemble an auxiliary verb in that their form never changes to show person or tense and that they cannot follow another verb in a phrase. In informal speech, people tend to omit had, especially with had better, as in You better do it. In formal contexts and in writing, however, had or its contraction must be preserved: You had better do it or You'd better do it. See Usage Note at rather.
