The PIE perfect usually developed into a Germanic past tense; in the case of the preterite-presents, however, it evolved into a present-tense verb.

Hence, the preterite-presents have a present-tense meaning on the one hand and a form that resembles that of a preterite or past-tense verb on the other. There were two participles in Old English: The present and past. The present participle was approximately equivalent to the Modern English "-ing" form of a verb (as in "The singing person") and the past participle was the form used an a adjective or in a passive verbal construction to show what had happened to someone, like in Modern English "I was killed" or "The song was.
