    Gerund

    Hi there, so I have seen several times in this website that people discuss about gerunds. I have tried to find out online about gerunds, but I didn't get. And of course I have tried to translate gerund to Lithuanian language, but unfortunately in my language this word means NOTHING! :P Just please explain this to me as shortly as possible that I could easily understand it and I hope that I will get it with your help. If I have made a mistake correct it If you are not tired.

    Re: Gerund

    Gerunds end in ing and are used like nouns. They take the same form as the present participle of the verb.

    Example:

    verb - sing

    present participle - 'I am singing a song'.

    gerund - 'I enjoy listening to the sweet singing of the choir'.
