Been shot?

Postby Tukanja » Mon Oct 18, 2010 8:52 pm

Is it possible to, in an informal conversation, ask a question like

Been shot?

(Has he been shot?)

It makes sense if you say something like your example: "Has he been shot?" You need to have the verb "to have" in front of the verb in the present perfect (been). So "Been shot" doesn't work, but "They have been shot." or Have you been shot?" are correct.
