    Re: please help me i have an proficiency exam 6 june

    Welcome, birkanayaz.

    Here are the basics.

    Participles have a form (what they look like) and a function (what they do in a sentence).

    Form
    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)

    Function
    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?
