Assunto:  I have ... Present and Past Perfect
 
Mensagem: 

The perfect is not actually a tense.

 

Like the continuous or progressive it is an aspect.

 

These two aspects can be combined with verbs in any temporal setting.

 

What is distinctive about the perfect is that it operates between two points in time:

 

From past A to past b – he had gone by the time I arrived

 

From past to present – Inter have won the scudetto again!

 

From present to future – By the time I finish this, I will have been at the pc for 7 hours.
