    Re: Please give me some examples of adjectives ending with "ing"

    Many adjectives ending in -ing are participles of verbs acting as adjectives. There are way too many to list.

    Thank you for kindly answer. I want only some examples. I think it's easy for native speakers to give me a few examples of the adjectives.

    Is this homework?
    It should be easy for anyone with a basic understanding of English to answer that question. You could look through a learning dictionary. If the word ends with "ing" and is labelled adj. then it's an example. You could do that with any language. Or read any article in English, and when you come to an "ing" word, decide whether you think it's an adjective. That shouldn't be too challenging. I think you'd learn something by doing that exercise that you wouldn't learn if we just listed a few for you. It's not that we're not willing. When you have some words, post them in sentences, and we can let you know if they're right.

    What an illuminating response :)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Please give me some examples of adjectives ending with "ing"

    Thank you again. It's not a homework. I am a nonnative speaker who love English. I study English every day together with my wife after my retirement. My wife asked me, after we talked about a word "interesting", to give her more examples but I couldn't. That why I came to "Ask a Teacher" this time. Now I think I should have asked another way like " Please tell me how can I find an example of adjective end with "ing".
    PS. Please correct my English for me if I have made mistakes.

    Re: Please give me some examples of adjectives ending with "ing"

    You should say 'It's not homework'.

    "Please tell me how can I find examples of adjectives ending with "ing".
    Raymott did that in post #4.

    He also included some examples in the same post, as Barb and I also did in posts 4 and 6.

    See if you can spot them.

    Sorry, I don't understand what Rover_KE wrote "Yes it is. Suthipong should find it enlightening" means. I am not good at English enough to understand that sentence. Please, anyone, help me to get meaning of the sentence.
