Hello there.

I'm very confused of the use of never. 'Never' explains that something we don't do at all. So that's mean it is a future tense. I was wondering, after 'never' is simple past tense or just present tense?

Thanks
Leroy.

Hi,
Welcome to the Forum.

I'm very confused of the use of never. 'Never' explains that something we don't do at all. So that's mean it is a future tense. No, no, no.

I was wondering, after 'never' is simple past tense or just present tense?

These examples are all fine.
1. When I was a child, I never watched TV.

2. I do not have a TV, so I never watch TV.

3. I've decided TV is a waste of time,. I will never watch TV again.

Best wishes, Clive

No. never is not a verb, so it doesn't have any tense.

never means 'at no time' within the time period expressed by the verb tense that goes with it. Study Clive's examples, and note that the verb tenses determine the temporal scope of the word never.

John never does homework.
John has graduated, but he never did any homework while he was a student.
John has never done any homework since he began my class.
John will probably never amount to anything.
John is never going to do any homework, so why bother assigning it to him?

All are grammatically correct. I'm glad I'm not John's teacher.

So the tenses after 'never' is depending on what tenses is in front of it, right?
No, wrong.
Consider, for example, Tom never eats fish.

Would you please tell me, which sentence is correct:

It hasn't rained for two months.

It has never rained for two months

Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

The former is right
