To work is said or has been said? Has it been said or has it been said? Doubt is sown, along with other more common ones like so, so or so, above all or above all, but or if not, go, fence, berry or balla, there is, there is, there or there or there is, there or Oh. When it comes to outlining an imperative sentence, the formula that concerns us on this occasion is one of the most used. The dilemma, however, lies in the way of writing the verbal construction. Is it, has it or is it? We see it below.
It has been said or has been said: is it written with ho without h?
It has been said is the short answer. 'Has said', as a verb form of the verb to say, constitutes a temporary particle of the past perfect compound, or what is the same, an action that has already been completely performed in the past and that is made up of two or more grammatical components.

Like any verb in the past perfect compound, the 'ha' that precedes the action is always written with h. In no case does 'ha' go without h.
A good way to identify its use and correct writing is to replace the phrase with the verb form 'it was said'. For example:
- We were told to go for a run.
- To run has been said.
Examples of phrases with has been said
As a general rule, the expression 'has been said' is used to give an order to a group of people, such as:
- To sleep it has been said! (everyone to sleep)
- To eat it has been said. (everyone have lunch)
It can also be used as a verbal construction to introduce a quote. For example:
- It has been said not to speak in the room, so please be quiet.
- In the morning news it has been said that there will be rains during the weekend.
- I think I will not see the presentation of the new iPhone live, since by now all its news has been said.
Whether it is said or has been said: does it go together or separate?
It has been said is the expression we use when we want to indicate an order. But can be said be used to indicate the same significant within an imperative sentence? The truth is that no.
The word 'be' within the verbal construction 'be said' acts as an idiom that can be substituted by the expression 'so be it' or 'be done' to indicate a command that encourages what the formula precedes to be said. The verb tense of the word be, therefore, is present in the subjunctive. Its use, of course, is much less common , referring to an order that forces the recipient to say or recite a prayer.

We can also refer to the expression 'say so', which usually indicates addition. If we change the order of the words to 'be said', it can also serve to record a fact or opinion . For example:
- Incidentally, I do not agree with what has been said.
- I'm not going on the excursion, and incidentally, it seems very expensive.
- Be told that I don't want to go out today, but tomorrow.
Examples of phrases with be said
- To eat is said. (you have to tell them they have to eat)
- To sleep be said. (you have to tell them they have to sleep)
- Be told that I do not want to go to the parent meeting. (for the record, I don't want to go to the parents' meeting)
