Grammer-, How to use tenses

This is the schedule of a foreign ambassador who is arriving tomorrow -

Reaches Anna International Airport, Chennai at 9.00 a.m - Visits the Governor at Raj Bhavan at 10.00 a.m - Dines at the embassy - inaugurates book-fair at 2.00 p.m - holds talks with industrialists at 4.00 p.m - hosts tea at the embassy - meets the press at 6.00 p.m - leaves for Airport at 8.00 p.m.

Look at the words in underlines  - reaches, visits, dines, inaugurates, holds talks, hosts, meets, leaves.

This is the schedule for tomorrow, but the tense used is Present. Why is that?

Tense and Time are different concepts. Tense is language specific (that is, it differs from one  language to another). while time is universal. English has only two tense systems, namely, Present and Past. There is no Future Tense or Future Tense markers as you have in Present and Past.

.e.g  He walks - ‘s’ is the present tense marker
He walked - ‘ed’ is the past tense marker
In ‘He will walk’ - ‘will’ is an auxiliary and is not an inflexion of the base verb, as in the case of present and past tense.

                Finite Verb                                             Non-finite Verb

       Present              Past                                ‘-ing’          Infinitive             ‘-en’
(Write, writes)       (wrote)                           participle       (to + go,           participle
                                                                                            to + write)

A finite verb is one to which a tense is attached and a Non-finite verb cannot indicate tense. Killing, taken, to see, are verbs which cannot indicate tense.
There is no one-to-one relation between time and tense.The examples in the following table.

Example                                           Tense                                               Time
                                                           Tense                                                meaning

I wanted to speak to you.               Past Tense                                        Present Time

A flower girl enters.                        Present                                              Present

Higgins, Pickering and Eliza          Tense                                                  Time

Her classes begin at half  past                 Present                                    Future Time

after two months.                                  Continuous

She usually receives visitors                   Present                                        All time
once a week.                                                                                   Tense (habitual actions)

Practice makes Perfect.                                                              (universal truths & Proverbs)

It’s time I left.                                           Past Tense                            Present Time

Would you mind telling me ....                  Past Tense                           Present  Time

I met you yesterday.                                   Past Tense                                Past Time
My aunt died of it. The bet was won.

There is yet another pattern -                   Present                                          Past Time
Here comes Caesar!                                   Tense                                           (narratives)

grammar - when we use conjuctions

Many words are used to connect sentences and those words give the passage the much needed 

Eg. I reached the station.

The train left.

I reached the station but the train had left

The word ‘but’ emphasizes the point that the train had left before I reached the station and also enriches the text.


1. Jenifer has answered the question.

2. Beulah has answered the question.

3. Both are not very clear about the answers.

‘Both’ in sentence 3 emphasizes the fact that Jenifer and Beulah have not answered properly and the word ‘both’ enriches the sentence.

The words ‘but’ and ‘both’ connect the sentences and enrich the meaning.

A few more conjunctions are and, or, because, etc.

Read the following passage and underline the conjunctions:

Malliga, a village girl wanted to get admission in a college in the city. She went to the bank to get a loan. But the manager was not there. She waited for him and met him. He refused to sanction the loan because she had no account in the bank. She immediately went home. But neither her mother nor
her father was at home. Both had left for the fields. She was not only shocked but also disappointed. She decided to go to the bank the next day.
