Re: Participle or Gerund..
Please don't apologise for that. I have been teaching for some 45 years now, and I still can't, with 100% accuracy, always identify what some would claim to be gerunds (or participles). My excuse is that I see little point in labelling for the sake of labelling. I see my job as helping learners to speak/write/understand English, not to be able to label words. Most of my students have been able to survive with 'the -ing form'.
