    Default Different types of processes

    I believe you do not have any information about the different types of processes, do you?

    I'm sorry. I don't know what you are asking.

    Let's take this sentence for example:

    Thirty per cent of all development llshould be covered with greenery llto help reduce the city’s soaring temperatures, llaccording to a consultancy study llcommissioned by the Buildings Department.

    In this sentence, I have used ll to seperate the sentence into clauses and I have underlined the processes. (I'm not sure whether it's correct)

    Fame, you've split the sentence into syntagmas, not into clauses.

    Oh, OK. I think I get what you mean. The words that you underlined are called participles:
    • Thirty per cent of all development should be covered with greenery [in order]
    • to help reduce the city's soaring temperatures [which is]
    • according to a consultancy study [that was]
    • commissioned by the Building's Department.
    Covered and commissioned are past participles. Soaring is a present participle

    And 'according to' is not a participle, it is a preposition.

    Clark, the poster is asking about the underlined words only.
