The Past Perfect Tense

We use the past perfect to talk about a past situation or activity that took place another past situation or activity, or before a particular time in the past:

Jo discovered that Leslie had lied to her.


Leslie lied Jo now


As Mary shook Mr. Morgan’s hand, she realized she had seen him before.


Mary saw Mary now

Mr. Morgan realized

The past perfect is formed by means of the Past Indefinite of the auxiliary verb to have and Participle II of the notional verb. In the interrogative form of the auxiliary verb is placed before the subject. In the negative form of the negative particle not is placed after the auxiliary verb. For example:

I had worked

He had worked

She had worked

We had worked

You had worked

They had worked

Had I worked?

Had he worked?

Had she worked?

Had we worked?

Had you worked?

Had they worked?

I had not worked

He had not worked

She had not worked

We had worked

You had not worked

They had not worked

The contracted affirmative forms are: I’d written.

We’d written.

The contracted negative forms are: I hadn’t written.

We hadn’t written.

The negative-interrogative forms are: Had you not written?

Hadn’t you written?
