I see, thanks... Hmm, so even if you are given the context that you should say something about e.g. a recently deceased person, you would in your colloquial dialect choose automatically the imperfect then?
I see. Could you think, PP, about some situation where you definitely use (given the right context, as when remembering a person during their funeral) the perfect in the main clause and then perfect also in a relative clause (connected to this main clause) where it would really be more likely to appear?
A situation has now just occured to me where the relative clause (if not the main one) would imperatively need to be in the perfect: if there's some adverbial phrase denoting a complete portion of time.It surely could happen, but it's hard to think about a situation where it would absolutely have to be that way.
