Thank you all

Maybe then one sentence sounds better than the other for those who think that there's no difference in their meanings. It would be interesting to get your thoughts on that.

Thanks.

Maybe someone could also tell me in what context the second structure is appropriate.

Hello, dear forum members.

Today I heard a person say something along these lines
Quote:
Have you ever had a much older man hit on you?


Could you, please, tell me what is the difference, if there's any, between the sentence above and the following sentence below?

Has a much older man ever hit on you?

Hello dear forum members.

Could you, please, tell me whether the following sentence would sound unusual without the indefinite article in it?

Quote:
She has good command of German


I've so far encountered this expression only with the indefinite article in it.

Here's the full paragraph (I'm not the author)

Quote:
The (sensational) claim, that Nabokov learned most of his English vocabulary by studying the Unabridged Oxford English Dictionary,
which explains weird wording and archaicisms found in his early American writing, could arouse genuine interest here, on the EFL-related forum.
Although I am not fully convinced by the statement, I'm afraid.


I think it's clear that the author does not mean she's frightened. The phrase "I'm afraid" is being used here to show politeness.

Could I also use "though" to rewrite that sentence in the following way?
Quote:
I'm afraid, though, I am not fully convinced by the statement.
