Tenses

Discussion in 'English' started by j.c.king, May 18, 2011.

  1. Is there a specific name for the tenses used here?
    "It was supposed to be wonderful..."
    " There were going to be benches..."
    "I nearly got into the garage..."
    Of course past but a specific kind of past? I know, I should know this!
    Thanks.

  3. You need the whole sentence to specify what kind of past tense I think. There is past continuous and past perfect but they are fairly specific.
     
  4. "I nearly got into the garage that Saturday morning."
    "There were going to be benches and a table and a swing."
    Thanks for the help.
