  • east slavic languages don;t have past perfect because the are the syntaxis languages. we have only 3 tenses. past present and future but in our languages we changing only the end of words. for example in english and the same word in russian. irr verd do-did-done-doing but in russian we use (делал-сделал)-(делать-делаю)-­(сделаю-буду делать) and all these words showing us all tenses. we don't have any helping verbs or articles like a or the because we don't need it.
