Causative Verbs; Make, Have, Let

Causative Verbs; Make, Have, Let
Ketika melihat seorang teman telah memotong rambutnya, pertanyaan mana yang lebih tepat kita utarakan? "When did you cut your hair?" atau "When did you have your hair cut?". Begitu juga jawabannya, mana yang lebih tepat, "I cut my hair yesterday." atau "I had it cut yesterday."?

Kedua bentuk pertanyaan dan jawaban tersebut sebenarnya memiliki perbedaan makna yang sangat mendasar "When did you cut your hair?" ~ "I cut my hair yesterday." sebenarnya bermakna memotong rambut kita sendiri tanpa bantuan orang lain. Jika kita menyuruh orang lain untuk melakukan sesuatu (misal: memotong rambut kita), akan lebih tepat jika kita mengatakan "When did you have your hair cut?" ~ I had it cut yesterday." Inilah yang disebut causative verb.

Penggunaan Causative verbs dalam kalimat bahasa Inggris memiliki makna bahwa seseorang menyuruh atau membuat orang lain melakukan sesuatu. Causative verbs juga bisa mengindikasikan bahwa seseorang meminta suatu hal terjadi. Causative verb bisa berbentuk kata kerja (tense) apapun.
Causative verb selalu diikuti kata kerja (verb) berbentuk simple (Verb 1), infinitive (to + Verb 1), atau past participle (Verb 3):
  1. Bentuk simple (The simple form)

  2. Bentuk Infinitive (The infinitive form)
    Causative verbs followed by the infinitive
    NounCausative verbNoun (person)Verb (simple)Noun

  3. Bentuk Past Participle (The past participle form).
    Causative verbs followed by the past participle

  1. Untuk menunjukkan bahwa seseorang menyuruh orang lain melakukan sesuatu, causative verb bisa diikuti bentuk simple (verb 1) atau infinitive (to Verb 1). Bentuk ini juga disebut Active Causative (nomer 1 & 2).
  2. Untuk menunjukkan bahwa seseorang menyuruh sesuatu dikerjakan oleh seseorang, causative verb harus diikuti bentuk past participle (verb 3). Bentuk ini juga disebut Passive Causative (nomer 3).
