The Present Tense:

The best definition of grammatical tense, which roughly relates to actual time, is the expression of location in time of verbs, which represent actions and states. The present tense is a grammatical tense that allows language users to perform speech acts in the form of sentences or sentence fragments in which the action or state occurs in the present in relation to the utterance. The present tense also allows language users to express futurity in some languages such as English and Spanish.
