  • The term causative verb is not used very much in EFL teaching. But it does start to appear when you get to certificate exam levels, when it refers almost exclusively to that same 'have something done' construction. This is a great site that goes through what constitutes a causative verb and how many of them there are! There are lots of practice quizzes / exercises.
