Tense names and comparison

Each language has its own way of naming tenses. For example, the tense of «I have gone» is called «present perfect» in English, «past perfect» in Spanish, «compound past» in French and «narrative past» in Persian. Moreover, not all tenses of a language necessarily have an equivalent in another language. For example, English doesn't have the tense of «rafte bude» and therefore, it can't be named according to English tense terminology: «past perfect perfect» makes no sense. For these reasons, it's best to introduce the tenses of a foreign language with their original name. This method is followed here as well as in my articles about verb conjugation in Persian. In your books and other places, you may see names that are similar to what is used in your native language but please note that not all tenses are discussed there. When it comes to talking about all Persian tenses, the only possible way is to introduce them by translating their Persian name.

NOTE The khwâ (خوا) of Persian script is maintained. Among other reasons, the homophone verbs خواستن (to want) and خاستن (to rise) remain distinguishable. Therefore, خواستن must be entered as khwâstan and خاستن as khâstan. Other verbs having khwâ: khwâbidan (خوابیدن), khwândan (خواندن).
