"Presente perfecto de indicativo" and "Preterito perfecto"
Are "Presente perfecto de indicativo" and "Preterito perfecto" the same tenses in Spanish? Gracias..
Here's another link that sets out all the tenses clearly, naming them which i found very helpful
Hi Daffodil, Would it help to know that the Perfect tense in English or the "Presente perfecto de indicativo" or even "Preterito perfecto" are one and the same verb foms but you may or may not know that it is considered in spanish to be a compound tense along with the pluperfect, the future perfect, the conditional perfect and the past anterior. These are all compound tenses in the indicative mood. The compound tenses in the subjunctive mood are the perfect and pluperfect subjunctives. - As has been correctly answered,they are not included in the DRAE because of their compound formation.
- The simple tenses in spanish are the present, imperfect,future,conditional and preterite in the indicative and the present subjunctive and the imperfect sujunctive in the subjunctive mood.
I hope I have not insulted your intelligence by telling you something that you already know and I have written all this in English as I am assuming this is your mother tongue.
not at all they are used like this passado : action had happened at specific time y el preterito del presebte es para : action happened in past and still continued at present moment
HI Daffodil, the tense you are mentioning does not really exist , as a tense itself. Both denominations would be incorrect in Spanish. Have a look at this link, enter a verb and you can see all the tenses.
