    swimming pool

    The swimming pool.
    Is 'swimming' here a gerund? it looks like adjective but it is formed from a verb.

    Re: swimming pool

    "Swimming pool" is a compound noun made up of the verb "swimming" and the noun "pool".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: swimming pool

    I agree it's a compound noun, but not necessarily that 'swimming' is a verb. It could be a gerund. It's a pool for swimming.
