perfektparticip

SwedishEdit

Alternative formsEdit

NounEdit

perfektparticip n

  1. (grammar) past participle

Usage notesEdit

  • Swedish does not use the past participle to construct the perfect and pluperfect tenses as e.g. English does: that construction instead uses the supine form. A rule of thumb may be that when English uses "have + <past participle>", Swedish uses the supine, but when English uses "be + <past participle>", Swedish also uses the past participle.
