Synonyms of "Olive" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Could I have extra olives? and Could I get extra olives? ?
A: Could I have extra olives (is more correct because it uses "Have" as in to recieve" but you should say "may i" not "could i" because "may I" is asking for permission to. Where as "could I" is asking if you (the speaker) is "able" to do something. And we don't know if you "are able to or not". "Could I get extra olives??" We have spoken about "Could" vs "May I". However in this sentence you don't want to use the word "may i" and "get" because it then implies you (the speaker) will go and get them. The meaning of "could I get" in this sentence is implied. "May i have" and you will probably hear it. However. Just a warning. "May i get", and "could I get" technically mean that you (the speaker) are going to go and obtain them. Because you are asking if you (the speaker) is able to "do" something. The proper way. Would be "May I have" this is truly asking if "they will provide you more".
