Only a quarter, roughly, of the languages of the world have a verb "to have".
WALS 117a is a good place to start:

Emne: [Lingtyp] predicative possession
could you please advise me literature on the encoding of the notion HAVE/HAVING in the languages that, unlike English, do not have generally applicable and versatile HAVE-verbs? I am interested in the grammaticalization paths in this semantic domain. (I suspect people call this field “predicative possession.”)
