Is there a distinction between the Perfect Tense and the Imperfect Tense in Ukrainian ?

March 31, 2017


There is no such thing as perfect tense in Ukrainian :) We have only one past tense. But it may have two aspects: finished and unfinished. They sometimes overlap with the English perfect tense by meaning, but not always, very often they can be interchanged as the Ukrainian aspect carries slightly different information in it. I can provide more details if anyone wants, just reply to this comment.

Yes, please.

NB English also only has one past tense, but with four aspects. :)

Continuous and perfect are "officially" aspects? I didn't know, thought they are considered as separate tenses... Thanks!

The aspects in English are:

  • Simple
  • Continuous
  • Perfect
  • Perfect continuous

Thanks! I thought those were called "tenses" too.

      Could this also say, " my girlfriend was traveling?"

      I'm nowhere near fluent in Ukranian, but my common sense would say that for it to distinguish from being any girl to my girlfriend, you'd have to add моя.
