comment How to say “had been [verbing]”?
Likewise, English has ways of expressing future time but lacks a future tense. Like Japanese, English has exactly two, although the details on when to use each tense differ.

comment What is the meaning of 座っておいで?
According to 大辞林 and also to Martin's 1975 Reference Grammar of Japanese p.838, the same verb お出で is used for all three meanings. I'm not sure お居で is right.

comment What is the meaning of 座っておいで?
It also behaves like a 補助動詞 in that it can contract―people say 「持っといで」.
