The term 'to have' is used in various senses. In the first place
it is used with reference to habit or disposition or any other
quality, for we are said to 'have' a piece of knowledge or a
virtue. Then, again, it has reference to quantity, as, for
instance, in the case of a man's height; for he is said to 'have'
a height of three or four cubits. It is used, moreover, with
regard to apparel, a man being said to 'have' a coat or tunic; or
in respect of something which we have on a part of ourselves, as
a ring on the hand: or in respect of something which is a part of
us, as hand or foot. The term refers also to content, as in the
case of a vessel and wheat, or of a jar and wine; a jar is said
to 'have' wine, and a corn-measure wheat. The expression in such
cases has reference to content. Or it refers to that which has
been acquired; we are said to 'have' a house or a field. A man is
also said to 'have' a wife, and a wife a husband, and this
appears to be the most remote meaning of the term, for by the use
of it we mean simply that the husband lives with the wife.
Other senses of the word might perhaps be found, but the most
ordinary ones have all been enumerated.
