Прошедшее совершенно-продолженное время the past perfect continuous tense

У п о т р е б л е н и е.

Past Perfect Continuous обозначает:

  1. Действие, которое началось до определенного момента (или

другого действия) в прошлом и продолжалось в этот момент (или одновременно с этим другим действием). Такие предложения обычно содержат указания продолжительности действия типа for two hours (в течение двух часов), since 5 o'clock (с пяти часов), since I came home (с тех пор, как я пришел домой).


He said he had been working Он сказал, что работает с утра.

since morning.

He had been sleeping for two hours Он спал уже два часа, когда

when we came. мы пришли.

2) Действие, которое началось и длилось до другого действия в

прошлом, но одновременно с ним уже не происходило.

Eg.: I took the book which he Я взял книгу, которую он

had been reading. читал.

Past Perfect Continuous употребляется с такими же указателями времени, как и Present Perfect Continuous: since, for.


I had been playing football for an hour Я играл в футбол уже час,

when Mother called me home. когда мама позвала меня


They had been working at this problem Они работали над этой

since 1997 until they got results. проблемой с 1997, пока не

получили результаты.

Утвердительная форма.

Past Perfect Continuous образуется при помощи вспомогательного глагола to be в форме Past Perfect (had been) и смыслового глагола в 4-й форме (основа + -ing).

had been + V ing

He had been working.

We had been working.

Отрицательная форма.

Образуется при помощи добавления отрицательной частицы not к первому вспомогательному глаголу had.

Eg.: I had not been working.

They had not been working.

Вопросительная форма.

Образуется путем перестановки первого вспомогательного глагола had и подлежащего - вспомогательный глагол ставится на первое место перед подлежащим.

Eg.: Had she been working?

Had you been working?

На русский язык Past Perfect Continuous переводится прошедшим временем несовершенным видом.
