10 people who became famous overnight
Good day, everybody! We use [HAS / HAVE] + [past participle] in the Present Perfect tense, as in: 1. Since the last time I saw you, you’ve grown. 2. The government is taking a greater interest in arts education. www.englishpage.com/verbpage/presentperfect.html Why is become used instead of were in Example 2? Isn’t it going to be in plain past tense? Regards and thanks 30.01.2007 15:50:53

Anyhow, “The past participle + the proper form/tense of ‘have’ (no matter what the tense of ‘have’) forms the compound” tense. I had been promoted to department manager earlier in the year.” “I’ll have won another degree next year.” [Even though it didn’t happen: “I would have eaten more for dinner if I had known.”] 30.01.2007 16:26:01
How america became a superpower
Is either of these sentences incorrect? When I took a test, I replied “became,” but my teacher told me that was incorrect and that I should have said “has been.” I seriously doubt it, and I assume both answers are right.
It is debatable. #1 is right if you’re arguing that a single event caused the name to become synonymous with a fast-paced game. #2 is right if the team’s history has made the name a sign of quick and furious play over time.
If the teacher said you can say “has been,” it’s because symbols of something are frequently for good, and once they’re a symbol of something, they can’t unbecome one (except maybe in very rare cases or so, in which you use became instead of has become, depending on the context)

Is there some sort of guideline or something?

When do we use the simple past tense became
Yeah, indeed! The past participle is often used to form perfect tenses. The issue is that they aren’t always obvious as past participles. Past participles in Spanish and Italian, for example, have a distinct form (-ato,-ito, -uto, -ido, -ado etc). They can take one of several forms in English:
In response to your question, the perfect tenses NEVER use present or past forms; instead, they always use a past participle.
