Harvey is a Bachelor’s of Linguistics. In his Honours project, he is investigating expressions in Dutch that use the past tense, but refer to events in the future (e.g. “Hoe laat begon de voorstelling vanavond?”). He wants to find out why the past tense can be used like this and how this affects the use of the past tense in other contexts.
