Tenses of the perfect system

The perfect system includes the present perfect (often just called "perfect"), the past perfect or pluperfect, and the future perfect. These tenses generally indicate completed action. It is convenient to think of these tenses as the present, past, and future of the perfect system. AG 473, 477, 478
