Can I use "have" instead of "get" here? And when do people use this kind of expression? 😎
Yes, you can. "Have" is considered grammatically correct instead of "got." The sentence should be "I have my eye one you Jay Quellin." However, since this skit is supposed to emphasize that the teacher mispronounces names, it fits his character well to use incorrect grammar. His sentence is considered English slang and is often used in informal conversations. Here are some examples of where "got" is used instead of "have." Ex: I got your back, man! Ex: Do you got a pen?
