How many forms of the participle are there in English? I know that there are two main, but I'd like to know all possible variations such as perfect particple and so on.
There are only two participles, the -ing or presentparticiple (being, going, having, arresting) and the past participle or third form (been, gone, had, arrested. They may be combined to construct passive (being arrested), perfect (having been, having gone, having had, having arrested) and perfect passive (having been arrested) forms.
