    until and present cont. tense

    Hello,

    I just would like to learn whether we can use 'until/till' with present con. tense and past con. tense or not.

    For example:

    I'm waiting for you until the end of the world.
    I was waiting for you until morning.

    Thanks....

    It's possible, yes.

    Re: until and present cont. tense

    Thanks for the answer. Does it comprise 'the future con. tense' too ?

    -I will be waiting for you till morning.

    Or does it require 'future perfect con. tense' ?

    "I will be waiting for you till morning" is fine.
