Question and answer
We have studied eightthreefour kinds of verbals.
The verbals are, participle, gerund, and infinitive. A gerund is a verbal that ends in -"ing" and functions as a noun. [ Gerunds may take objects, complements, or modifiers. Here are some examples of gerunds: "Borrowing money is usually a mistake." In this sentence, "borrowing" is a gerund. It is the subject of the sentence. "Money" is the object of the gerund. In this example, there are two
gerunds. The first, "seeing," is the subject of the sentence. The second, "believing," is the subject complement. "Seeing is believing." In this example, the gerund is "studying." The object of the gerund is "biology." "I enjoy studying biology." The infinitive is usually composed of the word "to" plus the present form of a verb. Infinitives are used as nouns, adjectives or adverbs. They can have subjects, objects, complements or modifiers. Here are some examples of infinitives: "Hal wanted to open the present." In this sentence, the infinitive is "to open". The infinitive phrase is the object of the verb "wanted" and "present" is the object of the infinitive. In this example, the infinitive is "to suit." It is used as an adjective modifying the noun "language." the object of the infinitive is "occasion." "Language to suit the occasion is best." In this example, the infinitive is "to show" which is used as an adverb modifying the verb "nodded." The noun "respect" is the object of the infinitive. "I nodded to show respect." ]
