: : Should we say: a group of words that HAS or HAVE a special meaning? Where can I find more info about grammatical rules related to this topic?

: My opinion -- group HAS.

The answer depends on what you intend to say has a special meaning. If it's the group, then "has." If it's the words, then "have." Most likely the words have meanings, the group doesn't, so you'd go with "have." "A group of words that have special meanings."
