“Pluperfect” is a crappy old word meaning “past perfect” which is a crappy old grammatical term applied to verbs whose actions were begun and completed in the past– as contrasted with Present and Future Perfects.

Verb tenses are not complicated, and if you’d studied Latin in High School (pluperfect), they are down right simple.
