Thank you. I think that's about as close an explanation of the position as we're likely to get within the constraints of a discussion such as this.

German linguists, then, unlike English linguists, perhaps describe tense in terms of meaning rather than form.

Thank you. English linguists on the whole regard tense morphological featue, rather than syntactical one. That may not be the case with German linguists. Yes, I understand the grammatical difference between 'Ich bin gegangen' and 'Ich bin geschlagen', but with most verbs, of course, German uses 'werden' to form the passive.
