because have to que sisnifica

"Because have to" is ungrammatical. One might hear "because I have to" as answer to a question:

"Why are you going home? The party is just getting started." "Because I have to."

It could mean "because I must", "because I should", "because I am forced to", "because it is my duty" DCDuring TALK 21:03, 7 October 2008 (UTC)

Just a passing thought, but does this merit its own entry? I'd want to say that "have" in this sense still functions as an auxiliary verb while "to" functions as a particle preceding an implied verb. 01:04, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Right. Some contributors like this kind of entry as a target for translation from their language. Other problematic entries of this specific sort are in Category:English non-constituents. DCDuring TALK 02:04, 7 June 2010 (UTC)
