1 PRESENT PERFECT IL PRESENT PERFECT È IL TEMPO VERBALE INGLESE CHE ESPRIME IL CONCETTO GENERALE DI UN AZIONE CHE, PUR ESSENDOSI SVOLTA NEL PASSATO, HA ANCORA QUALCHE TIPO DI RAPPORTO CON IL PRESENTE. TALE RAPPORTO CON IL PRESENTE PUÒ RIGUARDARE: - IL TEMPO IN CUI L AZIONE SI È SVOLTA. - L AZIONE STESSA, CHE NON È FINITA MENTRE SI PARLA. IN PRATICA, SI DEVE USARE IL PRESENT PERFECT QUANDO SI VERIFICA ALMENO UNA DELLE SEGUENTI CONDIZIONI. 1. L AZIONE SI È SVOLTA NEL PASSATO, MA IL TEMPO NON È ESPRESSO (NON DICO QUANDO). ESEMPIO: HO VISTO QUEL FILM. I HAVE SEEN THAT FILM. L AZIONE DI VEDERE IL FILM È PASSATA, MA NON DICO QUANDO L HO VISTO, PERCIÒ USO IL PRESENT PERFECT. 2. L AZIONE È PASSATA, IL TEMPO È ESPRESSO, MA NON È FINITO MENTRE SI PARLA. ESEMPIO: HO VISTO QUEL FILM QUESTA SETTIMANA. I HAVE SEEN THAT FILM THIS WEEK. L AZIONE DI VEDERE IL FILM È PASSATA E FINITA, IL TEMPO È ESPRESSO, QUESTA SETTIMANA, MA LA SETTIMANA NON È ANCORA FINITA. USO IL PRESENT PERFECT. 3.

(LO HAI MAI CONOSCIUTO?) NEVER RECENTLY LATELY YET MAI (VUOLE SEMPRE IL VERBO NELLA FORMA AFFERMATIVA) RECENTEMENTE A) ANCORA (IN FRASI NEGATIVE) B) GIÀ (IN FRASI INTERROGATIVE) I HAVE NEVER MET HIM.
