Right. Even more colloquial in American English would be:It is fine, although not the most common way to ask. It is much more likely that you would hear this outside the US - where "Do you have a minute?" would be more common. An alternative, also possibly preferred in the UK, would be "Have you got a minute?"
I had originally mentioned this form in my post but decided to remove it because it's a little baffling, considering my claims that (1) You got a minute? derives from You've got, with -ve deleted, and (2) have got cannot appear as an infinitival verbal constituent."Do you got a minute?" is something you might occasionally hear in AmE but never, ever, in BrE!!!
Have you any milk???? That even has been dumbed down now here in the states to Got Milk? (With apologies to panj)Have you any milk????
Ehi guys! This is not what I was taught and my father spent a lot of money to send me to the English school!!
Are you sure about that?
Yes, it is grammmatically correct. 'Have' is one of those verbs that can be inverted to make a question.is it grammatically correct to say "have you a minute?" to someone, when I am about to ask a question, and I don't know how busy he or she is?
Stick around - it might not be that far off. What you do hear with increasing frequency is:Looks like we have it covered (or "have got it covered"?)
"Have you got a minute?" is common in BrE (and there are threads on it, I'm sure)
"Do you got a minute?" is something you might occasionally hear in AmE but never, ever, in BrE!!!
