-s Pronunciation

Pronunciation of the final S in English

The pronunciation of the final S in plural words and verbs in the third person depend on the final consonant sound before that S.
The ending is pronounced /s/ after a voiceless sound, it is pronounced /z/ after a voiced sound and is pronounced /ɪz / or /əz/ after a sibilant sound:
  • Voiceless: helps /ps/ -- sits /ts/ -- looks /ks/
  • Voiced: crabs /bz/ -- words /dz/ -- gloves /vz/,
  • Sibilant: buses /sɪz / or /səz /, bridges /dʒɪz / or /dʒəz /, wishes /shɪz / or /shəz /
Have a look on the examples at Woodward page

Have something done?

We use have + object + -ed form when we talk about someone doing something for us which we ask or instruct them to do. It emphasises the process/action rather than who performs it:
We’re having the house painted next week. (We are not going to paint the house ourselves. Someone else will paint it. The emphasis is on the fact that the house is being painted rather than who is doing it.)
