Synonyms of "Have" and their differences

Q: i have ve i have got arasındaki fark nedir?

Q: should ve have arasındaki fark nedir?

Q: He should have arrived by now. ve He would have arrived by now. arasındaki fark nedir?
A:

“Should have” and “would have” are complicated expressions and their meanings overlap.

“he should have arrived by now” could mean just that he didn’t arrive yet for some reason. Whether or not you are annoyed or worried by his absence would come from tone of voice.

“He would have arrived by now” could be explaining that he MIGHT have arrived by now, if not for something that caused him not to (“he would have arrived by now, if he had taken a map!”)

The trouble is both expressions can also be used to make a conjecture, as in “I assume that he’s arrived now”. Examples:

A and B are in a back office.
A: We can start as soon as he’s here.
B: *checking clock* He should have arrived by now. (meaning: I do not know, but assume he is here now)

A: I’d like to get started as soon as your associate is here.
B: Ah, surely he would have arrived by now. Let’s go check reception. (meaning: Based on what I know of the circumstances, he ought to be here by now)
