Preterite vs. Imperfect
I'm just trying to clarify the differences. For example:
1. The food was delicious-imperfect?
2. The house was very big-imperfect?
3. The bump on his head was a tumor-imperfect?
Are these right? or should they be preterite?
I would choose preterite for (1), since the food was only delicious for a limited time (when it was eaten).
The others are imperfect tense.
