what word for past tense ( were), can you replace it with a present tense?
I'm not really sure of what you're asking; however, how about:
They were fighting. - to - They are fighting.
This question WAS written in a confusing way and IS confusing.
The past present tense for WERE is ARE and the future tense is WILL BE
They were children, you are children and those babies will be children.
If you are trying to change tenses with 'were' use this guide as follows:
Past Plural: were
Past Singular: was
Present Plural: are
Present Singular: is
Future: will, may
