Student or Learner
i have lots of problems about participles .. how can i learn it and where can i find exercise about it !!!
Here are the basics.
Participles have a form (what they look like) and a function (what they do in a sentence).
There are two kinds of participles:
1. present participles end in -ing
2. past participles end in -ed (e.g., walked) or -en (e.g., eaten) or -ne (e.g., done)
1. Participles function as part of a verb phrase (e.g., was eating; was eaten)
2. Participles function as adjectives (e.g., a swimming cap; a done deal.
Does that help so far?
