Homework Help: Spanish for Whitney

Posted by SraJMcGin on Thursday, December 9, 2010 at 9:13pm.

In case you don't go back to your other post, I don't want you to miss what I wrote:

It's new terminology then because for over 70 years I have only heard as verb forms:
Seven Simple Tenses:
Present Indicative (Presente de Indicativo), Imperfect Indicative Imperfecto de Indicativo), Preterit Pretérito), Future (Futuro), Conditional (Potencial Simple), Present Subjunctive (Presente de Subjuntivo), Imperfect or Past Subjunctive (Imperfecto de Subjuntivo)

and for the Seven Compound Tenss:
Present Perfect or Past Indefinite (Perfecto de Indicativo), Pluperfect Indicative or Past Perfect (Pluscuamprfecto de Indicativo), Past Anterior or Preterit Perfect (Pretérito Anterior -or- Pretérito Perfecto), Future Perfect or Future Anterior Futuro Perfecto), Conditional Perfect (Potencial Compuesto), Present Perfect or Past Subjunctive (Perfecto de Subjuntivo), Pluperfect or Past Perfect Subjunctive (Pluscuamperfecto de Subjuntivo)

plus: Imperative or Command (which is not a tense but a mood)(Imperativo)

***Nowadays you can look and look and probably never see the Future Subjunctive or the Future Perfect Subjunctive use the present subjunctive or present indicative for the first and future perfect indicative or the present perfect subjunctive for the 2nd.

Just in case the Real Academia Española made a new ruling, I went to their "vigésima segunda edición" and here is the message when I enter that term:

La palabra pretérito imperfecto no está en el Diccionario.
Please consult with the person who posted your school website OR the publishers of the textbook where that term is found.
