    Question About Noun: Game and Gaming

    Hi,

    I just saw a word Gaming within this link:

    http://www.nokiausa.com/exploreservices

    and suddenly thinking of that both Game and Gaming are NOUN.

    If all words (including Nouns and Verbs) plus "-ing" can be a NOUN?

    Thanks.

    Fenglish,
    No, any word plus -ing is NOT necessarily a noun.
    A verb in the progressive aspect has -ING: "I'm talking."
    A verb as a gerund uses -ing: "She likes hiking."
    A lot of adjectives are derived from progressive participles:
    "This problem is very interesting ."
    "She's more interesting than her sister."
