Is it correct to say that there is a continuous tense in the first sentence?
A plane carrying 100 passengers crashed yesterday.
Why does the verb carrying goes with in the 'ing' form? It's not a continuous form, for to be is not there. Perhapes, there is some kind of omitted or incomplete continuous forms that would explain this structure.
Thanks in advance!
Thank you! Mainly for the second link. I totally agree with the fact that 'ing form' is a much better name than present participle. Adding 'ing' to English verbs is not an esay task...
