Menggunakan Past Perfect Continuous Tense

Posted in Bahasa Inggris Itu Menyenangkan by branata on November 9, 2009

 

Past perfect continuous tense ini punya kemiripan dengan past perfect tense, yaitu terjadi di masa lampau, nah, yang membedakannya adalah past perfect continuous tense ini menyatakan bila peristiwa tersebut terjadi dalam durasi waktu yang lebih panjang, dan terjadi sebelum peristiwa lainnya terjadi (keduanya sama sama terjadi di masa lampau)

contoh :

  • Ram started waiting at 9am. I arrived at 11am. When I arrived, Ram had been waiting for two hours.

 

Ram had been waiting for two hours when I arrived.
past present future
Ram starts waiting in past at 9am.    
9   11

I arrive in past at 11am.    

 

contoh lainnya :

  • John was very tired. He had been running.
  • I could smell cigarettes. Somebody had been smoking.
  • Suddenly, my car broke down. I was not surprised. It had not been running well for a long time.
  • Had the pilot been drinking before the crash?

 

Past perfect continuous tense ini serupa dengan dengan present perfect continuous tense, hanya berbeda pada konteks waktu, yaitu waktu terjadinya peristiwa adalah di masa lampau (now the time is past)….

Sebagai contoh : anggap saja anda berjanji untuk menemui Kekasih Hati pada pukul 11.00 am.

Kekasih Hati berkata kepada anda :

  • "I am angry. I have been waiting for two hours."

 

kemudian anda menceritakan peristiwa ini (Kekasih Hati marah karena sudah menunggu anda selama 2 jam )

  • "Kekasih Hati was angry. He had been waiting for two hours."
