    -ing grammer?

    Hi..
    look at this sentence:

    it is not for sissies dining alone.

    What is the grammer of (dining)?
    I mean why we put it as this.

    Re: -ing grammer?

    In this sentence, dining is a gerund. It would improve clarity by changing it to: "Dining alone is not for sissies."
