I always get confused: "Past perfect" Vs "Past Tense." When do we use "Past Perfect"?What do you mean by "We are not talking of past in past"?Can you also give me a sample of "Past perfect" sentence?Thank you.Rgds, Anna
from my note:
The Past Perfect expresses the idea that something occurred before another action in the past. It can also show that something happened before a specific time in the past.
I had never seen such a beautiful beach before I went to Kauai.
Had you ever visited the U.S. before your trip in 1992?
see, in these, the sequence is: saw a beautiful beach --> went to kanaui --> discussing it now. 1st happened before 2nd, which too happened in past. (this is what I call "past in past")
Simple past tense:
something completed in the past and is over now.
I went to zoo yesterday.
she cooked food.
I lived in chile for 3 years.
Take the above SC for eg: we are discussing something that happened in past and has ended. simple past.
