  • 4. What are gerunds?<br />
  • 5. <ul><li>When we use a verb in -ing form more like a noun, it is usually a gerund:</li></ul>Fishing is fun.<br /><ul><li>When we use a verb in -ing form more like a verb or an adjective, it is usually a present participle:</li></ul>Anthony is fishing.<br />I have a boring teacher.<br />
  • 6. Gerunds as Subject, Object or Complement<br />Try to think of gerunds as verbs in noun form<br />Like nouns, gerunds can be the subject, object or complement of a sentence:<br />Smoking costs a lot of money.<br />I don&apos;t like writing.<br />But, like a verb, a gerund can also have an object itself. In this case, the whole expression [gerund + object] can be the subject, object or complement of the sentence.<br />Smoking cigarettes costs a lot of money.<br />I don&apos;t like writing letters.<br />
  • 7. Gerunds after Prepositions<br />
  • 8. Gerunds after Certain Verbs<br />We sometimes use one verb after another verb. Often the second verb is in the infinitive form, for example:<br />I want to eat.<br />But sometimes the second verb must be in gerund form, for example:<br />I dislike eating.<br />
  • 9. Here is a list of verbs that are usually followed by a verb in gerund form:<br />
  • 10. Gerunds in Passive SenseWe often use a gerund after the verbs need, require and want. In this case, the gerund has a passive sense.I have three shirts that need washing. (need to be washed)This letter requires signing. (needs to be signed)The house wants repainting. (needs to be repainted)<br />
