Shouldn't it be "He has payed me an hour ago"? Because there is "heeft" in the Dutch sentence.
No, you always have to use simple past in English whenever you specify the time ("an hour ago"). In Dutch, this is not necessary.
WHERE IS this said. What source?
cool, I appear to be learning English too, even though I am a native English speaker :-)
Note the English spelling: paid, not payed.
"Hij heeft mij een uur geleden betaald", says the chicken
Is the meaning of "geleden" "ago"?
He has paid me an hour ago....is this not the same thing? Got marked incorrect
In English, if the time is mentioned, you don't use the present perfect, but the simple past. It's grammatically incorrect to say "He has paid me an hour ago".
Could this be translated as "he payed me a while ago" or "he paid me hours ago"
It specifically says: Een uur geleden.
