Change is a very important feature of our modern life. Sometimes there major changes in our personal lives. There are also many strategies as to how Corporations react to changes. for example: downsizing (lean management), change management, strategic alliances, merging and so on..
As far as English grammar is concerned I know of two changes:
First, for changes just completed we use present perfect simple: E-commerce has speeded up the pace of business. They have opend a new fashion shop.
second, for changes in progress we use present continuous provided that the verb is dynamic: mental health problems are increasing. The divorce rate is soaring.
Does anybody know of any other changes which are relevant to English grammar and vocabulary.
changes that will commence after a point in the future

As far as I know from other posts you could provide some in-depth insight with regard to grammar and vocabulary.
