breakdown of irregular verbs
If we breakdown irregular verbs p.e.
Infinitive - Past Tense - Past (Perfect) Participle
to give - gave - have given
and we call have given the past (perfect) participle, such as most Grammar Books state in their breakdown, then, what do we call "had given".
So to make it more understandable:
Infinitive - Past tense - ???? participle
to give - gave - had given ??
If the answer is that "had given" is the past (perfect) participle, then I would like to know
what kind of participle is "have given". (taken into consideration that a present participle is formed with an ing-form.
Thank you in advance for the answer.
