This study presents a new interpretation of time in verbs, gerunds and other derivatives. Verbs change their tenses depending on the different items that are linked to the verb. That also applies to gerunds and some derivattives. So, the present verb might be linked to past links that change its tense into the past. The verb might also be changed to the present and the future depending on the context and its features. Therefore verbs are not always in the past tense, but they change their tense depending on the context. In fact, the imperative verb might refer to the past depending on the indications of the context. However, when the imperative verb is decontextualized, it does not represent a certain tense. Therefore, the verb might represent no tense. Gerunds and some derivatives might show the category of time and that can be determined depending on the time and the indications of the context.
