Is there any natural language that has a relative verb tense? For instance, if 'eho means "speak" ne'eho might mean "I speak now." to'eho might mean "I spoke/will speak sometime within the forseeable future/past" ke'eho might mean "I spoke/will speak sometime within the historical future/past" In other words, not differentiating for past or future, but for distance form the present.
