    Re: gerundive participle

    When you have a question about a grammar term, remember that you should Google it and check your grammar books or dictionaries first. If you cannot find the answer, then you can ask us. Tell us where you have already looked for help and what you found, rather than just asking us to define a term for you.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please don't refer to us as "sir". Many of us are female.

    I have not seen it either. Evidently some grammarians wish to end the distinction between -ing forms (gerund nouns and adjectival present participles). That seems to be where this term comes from.

    I could find no reference to a gerundive participle in that article.

    Agreed. Other web pages use that terminology. This article hyphenates "gerund-participle" rather than using "gerundive participle". "Gerundive" is used as an adjectival form of "gerund". The important point is the attempt to create a single item from two. I think we are better off looking at them as different entities.
