Have you ever noticed that the english verb 'behave' is just the two verbs of existence, 'be' and 'have', glued together?

English wtf, really?


@Stoori My son pointed that out to me when he was three.
I was exasperated and sternly told him to please behave. A few minutes later he said, "Look, Mama, I'm being have now."
I am aware enough of language that I felt very foolish for saying something so meaningless to my child.
