Past perfect Continuous



FORM


[had been + present participle]

Examples:

You had been waiting there for more than two hours when

she finally arrived.

Had you been waiting there for more than two hours when she finally arrived?

You had not been waiting there for more than two hours when she finally

arrived.

..........................................


We use the Past Perfect continuous to show that something

started in the

past and continued up until another time in the past. "For five minutes"

and "for two weeks" are both durations which can be used with the past

Perfect Continuous. Notice that this is related to the Present Perfect

Continuous; however, the duration does not continue until now, it stops

before something else in the past.


Examples:


They had been talking for over an hour before Tony arrived.

She had been working at that company for three years when it went out of

business.

How long had you been waiting to get on the bus?

Mike wanted to sit down because he had been standing all day at work.

James had been teaching at the university for more than a year before he

left for Asia.

A: How long had you been studying Turkish before you moved to Ankara?

B: I had not been studying Turkish very long.


.................................................. ...



Using the Past Perfect Continuous

before another action in the past is a good

way to show cause and effect



Examples:



Jason was tired because he had been jogging.

Sam gained weight because he had been overeating.

Betty failed the final test because she had not been attending class.

Past Continuous vs. Past Perfect Continuous

If you do not include a duration such as "for five minutes," "for two weeks"

or "since Friday," many English speakers choose to use the Past Continuous

rather than the Past Perfect Continuous. Be careful because this can change

the meaning of the sentence. Past Continuous emphasizes interrupted

actions, whereas Past Perfect Continuous emphasizes a duration of time

before something in the past. Study the examples

below to understand the

difference.



Examples :

He was tired because he was exercising so hard.

This sentence emphasizes that he was tired because he was exercising at

that exact moment.

He was tired because he had been exercising so hard.

This sentence emphasizes that he was tired because he had been exercising

over a period of time. It is possible that he was still exercising at that

moment OR that he had just finished.

REMEMBER Non-Continuous Verbs / Mixed Verbs




It is important to remember that Non-Continuous Verbs

cannot be used in

any continuous tenses. Also, certain non-continuous meanings for Mixed

Verbs cannot be used in continuous tenses. Instead of using Past Perfect

Continuous with these verbs, you must use Past Perfect.


Examples:

The motorcycle had been belonging to George for years

before Tina bought

it. Not Correct

The motorcycle had belonged to George for years before Tina bought it.

Correct


ADVERB PLACEMENT

The examples below show the placement for grammar adverbs such as:

always, only, never, ever, still, just, etc.


Examples:

You had only been waiting there for a few minutes when she arrived.

Had you only been waiting there for a few minutes when she arrived?


ACTIVE / PASSIVE

Examples:

Chef Jones had been preparing the restaurant's fantastic dinners for two

years before he moved to Paris.
Active



The restaurant's fantastic dinners had been being prepared by Chef Jones for

two years before he moved to Paris
.


Passive


NOTE: Passive forms of the Past Perfect Continuous

are not common.
