HAS should be the correct word instead of HAVE.... Because you are referring anybody which is singular form so grammatically speaking your verb also correspond the subject which is anybody and the verb should used is HAS not HAVE? It's logic guys. English 101

The correct way of saying, or writing, this would be "Has anyone seen my umbrella?" "Anyone" is the more formal pronoun and is used about 3 times more often in print than the word "anybody." Also, "have" is plural and both "anybody/anyone" are singular; you need to use "has" instead of "have." >>Change the sentence from "have anybody seen my umbrella" to "Has anyone seen my umbrella?"<<

"Have anybody seen my umbrella?" is not grammatically correct. Reason: anybody is a singular pronoun. Thus, it should only take has and not have.

To have something is to be in possession of the umberella. Has anyone seen my umbrella is the correct grammar.

Has is the correct word instead of have. Dandan Israel Tiu explained it better.

The umbrella should be 'U' capital in "Has anybody seen my Umbrella?" Another option is " Did someone see my Umbrella "? and also "Did you see my Umbrella?" or "Did anyone of you see my Umbrella?"

"Did anybody seen my umbrella?" is more suited to the word have.

''Has' anybody seen my umbrella' as you are referring to many people.
Added 8/18/2011 6:18:56 AM
Many people HAVE seen my umbrella. A person HAS seen my umbrella. "Anyone" refers to one person, perhaps a member of the group being addressed. Therefore, "Has anyone seen my umbrella?" is the proper form. Anyone has. People have. (BTW: The word "umbrella" is not a proper name, so doesn't need to be capitalized unless it's at the beginning of a sentence.)
Added 8/18/2011 12:37:45 PM
There is no reason capitalize umbrella because it is not a proper noun, nor is it the first word in the sentence.

Did anybody seen my umbrella? is obviously WRONG! when using the word DID it should not be accompanied by SEEN, instead use SEE .. seen is the past participle of see

English 101 -- thats according to dandan ENGLISH 101 well i think you have to undergo english 101 with your grammars i guess? i am not trying to be rude but when you say ENGLISH 101 it should reflect to your answers....

Oopss, @eisendrew28, you are telling you're not trying to be rude but you seem you are. Review also your latest comment because I can see errors, too. I hate to do this but sometimes we need to check our own English grammar before we correct others like being conscious of what to use not only on the obvious subjects but to all the subjects and objects mentioned in a statement or in a sentence.
