    A participle is a word having the characteristics of both verb and adjective.

    a detailed explanation is here: Verbals: Gerunds, Participles, and Infinitives: Participles - The OWL at Purdue

    A gerund is a verbal noun ending in -ing that has the function of a noun and at the same time shows the verbal features of tense, voice, and capacity to take adverbial qualifiers and to govern objects.
