Whatīs the difference between these adjectives: stressing and stressful?
'stressing' is the present participle of 'stress' whereas 'stressful' is an adjective, meaning that something is full of stress or causes worry.
The problem is that Iīve googled for the word "stressing", and found many hits like " I had a stressing day", " a stressing time", etc... I know some hits donīt mean much, but I admit I got confused, as I couldnīt find the word in the dictionary.

Sorry, I'm in a hurry ...
Google does have a tendency to give you 3 million suggestions and not all of them are grammatically correct. In fact, in this instance, the correct phrase may be: 'I had a stressful day' rather than 'stressing day'.
