Since the only meaning of “has” in the dictionary is the third person singular present of have, then what meaning would “has has” have in a sentence such as:

“The defendant has has not been convicted of any other domestic violence offense”

Is the statement, perhaps, a quotation from a st-stut-stuttering la-law-lawyer?
Hi IronHelix and welcome to EnglishForward,

It is probably because the noun "have" is the superordinate word (hypernym)of the words such as person, individual, someone, somebody, mortal, human, soul.

“The defendant has has not been convicted of any other domestic violence offense”

“The defendant person / individual has not been convicted of any other domestic violence offense”

hope this helps

Hallo IronHelix,

there is a tiny mistake there:

The defendant has / has not been convicted of any other domestic violence offense.

You are given two alternatives.

rgds,

cairn

BTW: third person singular present of have is not meaning but verb form.
I don't get what you meant, yulysess. Could you elaborate on that, please?
Hi cairn,

Could you please rephrase the sentence?

Wow, Yulysess! That has got to be one of the wildest and whackiest speculations I've ever read on EnglishForward.
