Transcript

  • 1. Verbals 1. Gerunds A verbal is a word formed from a verb but functioning as a different part of speech. A gerund is a verbal ending in -ing that functions as a noun. Like an ordinary single-word noun, a gerund may be used as a SUBJECT DIRECT OBJECT
  • 2. RETAINED OBJECT SUBJECTIVE COMPLEMENT
  • 3. OBJECT OF PREPOSITION APPOSITIVE
  • 4. DELAYED APPOSITIVE In the example below, the gerund phrase renames the subject, this. NOTE: Do not confuse gerunds with verbs (predicates) in the progressive tense. GERUND
  • 5. PREDICATE VERB Even though is cooking and was scratching end in -ing, they are not gerunds because they are used as predicate verbs, not as nouns. 2. Participles A verbal is a word formed from a verb but functioning as a different part of speech. A participle is a verbal that functions as an adjective.
  • 6. Two kinds of participles: A. Present participles, always ending in -ing, are created from the form of a verb used with the verb to be ( am, is, are, was, were, been) as an auxiliary verb (progressive tense). Removing the auxiliary verb and using the -ing form of the main verb as an adjective produces a present participle. B. Past participles, usually ending in -ed or -en, are created from the form of a verb used with the verb to be as an auxiliary verb (passive voice).
  • 7. Removing the auxiliary verb and using the -en form of the main verb as an adjective produces a past participle.
  • 8. Past participles may also be part of a participial phrase.
  • 9. B. Past participles, usually ending in -ed or -en, are created from the form of a verb used with the verb to be as an auxiliary verb (passive voice). Removing the auxiliary verb and using the -en form of the main verb as an adjective produces a past participle.
  • 10. Past participles may also be part of a participial phrase.
  • 11. Participles and participial phrases should be placed near the nouns they modify. They may either precede or follow a noun. For punctuation rules used with participles and participial phrases, follow this link. 3. Infinitives A verbal is a word formed from a verb but functioning as a different part of speech. An infinitive is a verbal formed by placing to in front of the simple present form of a verb. Examples: to swim to think to read to be to cut to turn
  • 12. Infinitives may function as adjectives, adverbs, or nouns. A. Adjectival infinitives Just like a single-word adjective, an infinitive used as an adjective always describes a noun. An adjectival infinitive always follows the noun it describes. EXAMPLE Like gerunds and participles, infinitives may incorporate other words as part of their phrase. EXAMPLE B. Adverbial infinitives Just like a single-word adverb, an infinitive used as an adverb always describes a verb. An adverbial infinitive usually occurs at the beginning or at the end of a sentence and does not need to be near the verb it describes.
  • 13. EXAMPLE: Adverbial infinitive at sentence beginning EXAMPLE: Adverbial infinitive at sentence end HINT: You can always identify an adverbial infinitive by inserting the test words in order in front of infinitive. If the words in order make sense, the infinitive is adverbial.
  • 14. PUNCTUATION NOTE: 1. Use a comma after the adverbial infinitive when it starts a sentence. 2. Do not separate the adverbial infinitive from the rest of the sentence if the infinitive ends the sentence. C. Nominal infinitives Like a single-word noun, a nominal infinitive may function as a SUBJECT DIRECT OBJECT
  • 15. RETAINED OBJECT SUBJECTIVE COMPLEMENT APPOSITIVE DELAYED APPOSITIVE
