    Lightbulb Present Continuous + gerund?

    Dear Teacher,

    Is this sentence correct?: "Ann is going running."

    Is it future with gerund (going to+verb+ing)?

    Thanks in advance. agi

    Default Re: Present Continuous + gerund?

    It's correct, but I would not agree with the analysis- I would say it is the present progressive + gerund. Going to would be followed by an infinitive/base form in most cases.
