Hi Ant,

The French word for "tense" is the same as for "time".

In my mother tongue there's one word for "tense", "time" and "weather"... just imagine how confusing that can be Emotion: smile

Let's just hope you can weather this discussion on English tenses.
By the way, the Germans use the word 'Zeitform' -- a very literal translation of that would be 'time form'.

Same in Spanish.
it's the same in Bulgarian ....weather, time, tense - Vreme (време)
Wouldn't you say there are twelve tenses?

Simple , Progressive, Perfect, Perfect Progressive - each with past, present, and future tenses - for a total of twelve? What is the difference between, for example, Future Perfect in the past and Future Perfect? Is it just the modal auxilary "would" and since that is not a true helping verb, can we consider it one of the tenses?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

I even don't know how if I should take it as an ironic note... Though I am gonna write it (now that I am back from a Crimea trip).
