Tense is a property of verbs to indicate when an action happened, happens, or will happen. The usual tenses are past, present, and future.
Some argue that, because we don't have a separate inflection for the future — we form it with an auxiliary verb — English doesn't really have a future tense. Seems a niggling distinction to me, but what do I know? Note that tense is sometimes folded together with aspect and treated as a single category.
Others prefer to use tense to refer only to time of the action, and treat aspect as a separate category. If you observe this distinction, you can be more precise in some comparisons.

I don't have a good answer, other than the most general advice possible: Be careful not to confuse them: According to the more quibbling self-styled grammar experts, that is restrictive, while which is not.
Many grammarians insist on a distinction without any historical justification. Many of the best writers in the language couldn't tell you the difference between them, while many of the worst think they know.
If the subtle difference between the two confuses you, use whatever sounds right. Other matters are more worthy of your attention.May 16, · I'm finishing up my master's thesis, and I am having trouble picking a font to print it in.
