    Re: Inclusive or Including

    'Inclusive' and 'including' are different parts of speech.

    1. 'Inclusive' is an adjective; often a predicate adjective.

    The list you have is all inclusive. (It includes everything.)

    2. 'Including' is the present participle of 'include.'

    I'm including my name on the list.

    3. It can also be used as a gerund.

    Including you, there will be seven people at the meeting.
