Which of the following is (Should I use "are" insted of is here) correct?

James and Bond are ill.


James and Bond is ill.


I din't have time to finish my work.


I had not time to finish my work.

Hello Paddy

'James and Bond are ill.'

'I didn't have time to finish my work'; or, slightly more emphatically, 'I had no time to finish my work'.

'I had not time to finish my work' would once have been correct, but is now archaic.

I agree:

"I had not time..."

Is somewhat archaic, but with the negation adverb abridged:

"I hadn't time..."

Still sounds okay to me. Would like your opinion on this Mr.P
That's true, NC. I hadn't thought of that.

Can any other transitive/non-auxiliary verb take a postpositional 'not' without sounding archaic, I wonder. Cf 'be' ('wasn't').

Perhaps it's because we're used to 'have not/haven't' in an auxiliary context.

What does it mean?

Why are you hoarse?

Hello Paddy

'Hoarse' is when the inside of your throat is rough or sore. Maybe you've been shouting too much; maybe you've got a cold.

When you're 'hoarse', your voice sounds low and rough and croaky. You can hardly speak.
