Have you...?

 
by Debi
Is there any instance in which you can say Have you....?
e.g. Have you any brothers or sisters?

Hi Debi,

"Have you any brothers and sisters" is perfectly correct, although it sounds more formal to my ears as a native speaker. A teacher might phrase it this way, or if you are asked to give your particulars, e.g. for filling out a form. In conversation we would be more likely to say: "Do you have any brothers and sisters?", or (more colloquial), "have you got any brothers and sisters?".

Hope this helps,

Cheers
