Acquired feature

Just now I was thinking about how to say to my yard guy that there was no one in Mexico with the money to pay for such yard service (obviously, there are lots of people in Mexico with that kind of money but these guys don’t have access to them). I muttered to myself, “No hay nadie en Mexico que tenga el dinero…..” using the subjunctive after the negative. That is acquired for me, no thought . That’s what I mean when I say a feature is acquired.

In reviewing French grammar as I teach my granddaughter French, I am finding quite a few of these acquired items b/c they contrast with other features that are new information for me. I am making a list of them that I will put up on this entry.
