Mechanical Monday – The Perfect Tenses

You know this little cutie because it’s form is: have + past participle.

Its function is to tell you about something occurring before a second time/event.

“He has already slept.” (the present moment is the second event…he’s slept before now).

“I had already showered before my muddy nephew hugged me.”

“She will already have a new boyfriend by the time the concert is done.”
