The Present Perfect Tense – affirmative and negative (focus on form)

bee grammar

To form Present Perfect, we use have/has + past participle (3rd column for irregular verbs and -ed for regular verbs). Of course, when the subject is I, we, you, they or any plural noun use have. When the subject is he, she, it or a singular noun use has.

(Sadašnji perfekt se gradi uz pomoć pomoćnih glagola have/has i prošlog participa glavnog glagola (treća kolona nepravilnih glagola ili nastavak -ed za pravilne glagole. Naravno, kada je subjekat u rečenici Ja, mi, vi, oni ili imenica u množini koristimo have, u slučajevima kada je subjekat u rečenici on, ona, ono / to ili imenica u jednini koristimo has.)

We can use short forms for have and has, ‘ve or ‘s.

(Naravno, umesto have i has možemo koristiti kratke oblike ‘ve ili ‘s.)

To make the Present Perfect negative, we use haven’t/hasn’t i past participle.

(Odrični oblik gradimo uz pomoć haven’t/hasn’t i prošlog participa.)
